Teriyaki tofu with noodles and broccoli.

This is not as much of a recipe as it is a suggestion on how to use these yummy ingredients in a simple dish.

Firm tofu
Chinese broccoli (broccolini or regular broccoli is good too)
Teriyaki sauce*

1. Slice the tofu and pan fry until golden. Set aside and marinate in the teriyaki sauce for a few hours.
2. Chop up the broccoli and pan fry until softened.
3. In the meantime cook the noodles you want to use (we used thin rice noodles)
4. Dice the marinated tofu (optional) and add to the broccoli along with the cooked noodles. Add some extra teriyaki sauce, stir and serve hot!

1/4 cup soya sauce
1 cup water

1/2 tsp ground ginger (we added 3 pieces of ginger)
1/2tsp ground garlic or garlic powder

5 tbsp brown sugar
1tbsp honey 
1tbsp cornflour dissolved in a little cold water (for thickening)

1. Put all the ingredients except the cornflour in a small saucepan, dissolve sugar crystals and heat stirring constantly.
2. Once hot, add the cornflour and water mixture and whisk until the sauce reaches the desired thickness.
3. It can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
