This is what tofu looks like when it's masquerading as noodles. Pretty convincing, eh?
In most Asian markets, you'll find tofu noodles in the refrigerated section with the regular tofu. "Tofu sheets" (pictured above left) are akin to fettuccine while the "tofu shred" (right) is more like spaghetti. Both make great additions to stir-fry and soups or, as in today's recipe, tossed into a healthy salad.
