Glass noodles with spicy yuba and vegetables
Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Dairy-Free
30 – 40 Minutes
This protein-packed vegetarian meal in a bowl can help you stretch your noodle horizons. A delicacy in Japan, yuba is made from the skin that forms on the surface of soy milk when it’s heated to make tofu. The noodles are tender and chewy and especially fun to eat when tossed with springy glass noodles made from mung bean starch. Here we load them with thinly sliced cabbage, bell pepper, carrots, umami-rich mushrooms, and a fried egg.
