  • 4Servings


  • 1 14 ounce package extra-firm tofu, cut into 3/4-inch cubes and patted dry
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3/4 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 12 ounce package broccoli slaw


Season the tofu with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon grated ginger and the sesame oil.

In a large pot, bring 4 quarts salted water and the remaining 2 tablespoons grated ginger to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente; drain, reserving 2 cups pasta cooking water. Return the pasta to the pot.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the tofu in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, until browned on 1 side, about 3 minutes. Repeat, turning the cubes, until browned on all sides; transfer to a plate. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes.

Add the broccoli slaw, mushrooms, ginger-soy mixture and reserved pasta cooking water to the pasta and toss to coat. Divide the pasta and broth among 4 bowls and top with the tofu.
