One of the BEST Pantry Staple Noodle Recipes

This tofu garlic noodle recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple meal!  It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards – most of which you probably have on hand. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious and tasty meals using a few staples you can rotate.  I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep stocked.

And you can check out all my favorite pantry staple ingredients in my Amazon shop here.  By stocking up on whole ingredients you can cook delicious recipes without a trip to the store!

What’s In These Sticky Garlic Noodles?

I get fresh produce from my garden and from Misfits Market– they sell fantastic fruit, vegetables, & pantry staples at a discounted price. We get Misfit boxes every other week and love picking out favorite produce for delivery. Get $10 off your first box here!

  • Tofu – I used high protein tofu
  • Light Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect sweet flavor to the sauce of this dish. Light sesame oil is traditional in a lot of Asian dishes, and will give your noodles the perfect flavor.
  • Lime juice
  • Corn Starch: the secret to thicken the sauce at the end, it really makes a difference.  I use it weekly to make crispy potatoes and tofu!
  • Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive online, so I keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value, I would highly recommend!
  • Rice Noodles – I like to use stir fry noodles as they are super versatile. These rice noodles have a great texture and work in any Asian-inspired dish.
  • Garlic
  • Bell Pepper
  • Sweet Chili Sauce: gives this dish a bright flavor and sweetness, I love adding this Thai Chili Sauce over noodles or rice, it has a great flavor and is vegan and gluten free.
  • Tamari: tamari is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. Tamari has a bright salty flavor, and adds a really nice depth of umami to this dish. If I am cooking for a crowd, I always use this tamari in my recipes just in case anyone at the table has a gluten allergy, so everyone can enjoy this meal.
  • Green Onions
  • Sesame Seeds – I love adding a handful of these sesame seeds to finish off this noodle recipe! These seeds add a nice crunch and light flavor to the dish.

How Do I Make Tofu Noodles?

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cut tofu into 1/2 inch cubes, and place them in a bowl with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and lime juice.  Mix and marinate for 10 minutes.  Add the corn starch and toss to coat the tofu.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of the sunflower oil on top of the parchment paper lined sheet pan, and add tofu in a single layer on the sheet pan, and bake for 40 minutes, flipping halfway during cooking time.
  4. While the tofu is baking, boil a large pot of water and cook rice noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set noodles aside in a colander to rest. In the same pot you cooked the noodles in, add the remaining tablespoon of sunflower oil and lightly sauté the garlic for 3 or 4 minutes over low heat.  Add the chili sauce and tamari, and bell pepper and continue cooking for 4 minutes.  Add the noodles back to the pot with the vegetables and stir together to combine.
  5. Dish up noodles in a bowl, and top with a heaping scoop of crispy baked tofu. Top with sesame seeds an green onions for garnish.
