Zoodles with crispy tofu
200 grams of extra firm tofu
100 grams of edamame beans
100 grams of snow peas
1 heaped teaspoon of ras el hanout
1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
2 heaped teaspoons of nutritional yeast
3 teaspoons of sesame seeds
zest of 1/2 a lemon
big pinch of salt
Zoodles to serve
200 grams of the mushroom mix(you can use any that you like)
plus spices to marinate them
1 tsp of paprika
1 tbsp of coconut aminos (you can use soy sauce)
leaves from few sprigs of thyme
2 cloves of garlic
Preparation
First mix all the spices. Clean mushrooms from any dirt with a paper towel and place them in the bowl
Sprinkle spices and chopped garlic over them, gently massage them in and leave to marinate while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Pat dry tofu and cut it into cubes, sprinkle the rest of the spices and sesame seeds over tofu and toss it together, so it is evenly coated.
Add tofu cubes to the preheated on the medium heat pan and fry for 2 mounts one side, then stir it and cook​ for 2 minutes more undisturbed.
Move it to one side of the pan and add all the mushrooms along with the liquid left after marinating(if you used a mix as I did first add bigger mushrooms and press them down with a spatula and only add small ones when the big mushrooms have been nearly cooked)
Cook till the liquid has evaporated and added snow peas and edamame
Deglaze the pan with a splash of water and turn off the heat
Serve over zoodles
