  5. * 1 ½ TBLS organic miso (red miso is very tasty with this dish)
  6. * 1 ½ teaspoons honey or agave nectar
  7. * 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil
  8. * 1 ½ teaspoon tamari
  9. * 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  10. * 1 ½ teaspoons olive oil
  11. * 4 quarts water (approximately, for cooking noodles)
  12. * 4-5 cups vegetable broth
  13. *12 ounces rice noodles
  14. * 3 TBLS organic miso
  15. * 3 TBLS rice wine vinegar
  16. * 3 teaspoons tamari
  17. * ½ cup yellow onions, sliced thin (optional)
  18. * 6 green onions, thinly sliced (reserve 2 for garnish)
  19. * 1 ½ teaspoon of sesame seeds (optional for garnish)
  20. * Optional vegetables: 1 cup snow peas, ½ cup carrots (thick strips)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C)
  2. Carefully press the liquid out of the tofu with a plate or cutting board. Place to the side
  3. Chop squash into ¾ inch pieces making sure to remove the skin
  4. Place squash in an oiled baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over the top
  5. In a small bowl whisk miso, vinegar, tamari, sesame oil, honey and ginger
  6. Drizzle miso mixture over the squash. Roast squash for 7 minutes then turn over and roast another 7 minutes. Check often to make sure it does not burn. Remove from pan when the squash is caramelized lightly
  7. While roasting squash, bring water to a boil in a large pot. Shut off the heat then add rice noodles. Stir every minute or two. Watch carefully, they are easy to overcook. You want them slightly undercooked. Drain in colander and run cool water over noodles to prevent from cooking. Set aside. Note: If noodles are perfectly cooked to start, they’ll turn to mush when you stir fry them
  8. To make sauce add vegetable broth, 3 TBLS miso, 3 TBLS vinegar and 3 teaspoons tamari. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until miso is dissolved. Add green onions. Cook until onions are tender
  9. Oil a large saucepan. Cook carrots (if desired) until almost done. Cook tofu cubes, salt, yellow onions (optional), snow peas (optional) and garlic (optional) over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes. Add noodles and stir fry lightly until done
  10. To serve, separate noodles evenly into 6 bowls. Add squash on top of noodles then the tofu. Garnish each dish with green onions and sesame seeds (optional). Enjoy!
