I love it when a recipe comes together....

Dinner tonight was totally improvised and it came out fantastic.

First I marinated some firm tofu, cut into cubes, in a mixture of House of Tsang Wok Oil (flavored with garlic, ginger, onion and cilantro), toasted sesame oil and soy sauce.  Then I heated up some Wok Oil and sesame oil in a large skillet, then tossed in some minced garlic and sauteed for a minute or so.  Then I sauteed some carrots for about 3 minutes then added a healthy dose of soy sauce.  Then I added some green onions and cabbage and sauteed them for a minute or two.  Then I tossed in the tofu, and cooked for another minute.  Then I added some chuka soba noodles and stir-stir-stirred until the noodles where well mixed in with the veggies.  Then I tasted the veggies and added more oil and soy sauce to get the flavor right.  Then I tossed in a handful of toasted sesame seeds.

I served the stir fry with some sweet rice and seasoned rice vinegar.  I even served fortune cookies (store bought) afterward.
