Look for black bean sauce, mirin, and udon noodles in the Asian section of your market. If you can’t find udon noodles, use whole-wheat fettuccine. Hoisin or teriyaki sauce can replace the black bean sauce; the dish will be much sweeter, but still very tasty.

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine black bean sauce and mirin; mix well. Press tofu between paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Cut tofu into 3/4-inch slices; cut slices into 1-inch squares. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the black bean mixture with the tofu, toss, and set aside.
  2. Heat a large, deep, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of the sesame seed oil, garlic, and bok choy stems; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add bok choy leaves, carrots, and tofu mixture; stir-fry 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add salt to taste.
  3. Drain noodles; toss with remaining black bean mixture and remaining 2 teaspoons sesame seed oil. Transfer to serving plates. Spoon tofu mixture over noodles. Garnish with daikon or red radish and pickled ginger.
