Stir-Fried Sesame Garlic Noodles with Tofu and Veggies
This recipe is quick, easy and it’s cheap! This dish is reminiscent of an (Americanized) Chinese lo mein dish, but much healthier. It is also the perfect recipe to make when you need a quick and easy lunch or dinner and it is wonderful hot or cold.
