Noodle is my comfort food. There are so many ways to whip it up. It doesn’t need a lot of time to cook, and it can go with anything. From a simple stir fry to a bowl of steamy noodle in hot broth, every kind of noodle dishes is so comforting, and I love them all.
I don’t like to cook anything complicated on the normal days. Tofu and Noodle with Sticky Plum Sauce is that kind of food I make at home on regular basis. It’s simple, easy and take less than 15 minutes to cook. I use some plum sauce for the dressing. It’s sticky, sweet and full of flavor.
