Sesame Shiitake Miso Tofu Noodles

For a person who has had to buy herself new undies every week for the past two months due to her inability to do the laundry when is supposed to, I’d say that my meal-prep game is on point.

We’re talking 4 new packets of (actually super cute) knickers AND a new pair of running pants since all my clothes seem to be either:

1) On the never-ending pile of things I desperately need to wash.

2) On the shamefully big pile of clothes that I have already ruined due to the fact that I seem to have the skills of a 4-year-old when it comes to loading the washing machine. RIP wool sweaters.

 Because apparently wool sweaters don’t go in the washing machine unless you want them to come out as if they were scratchy crop tops, which, if it’s what you’re going for, it’s perfectly fine. Go ahead and flaunt your new super-uncomfortable sweater which now totally makes you look as if you had stolen a 3-year-old’s. In the meantime, I’ll sit here crying at the loss of my favourite vintage sweater AND the amount of physics homework I need to get done (killing two birds with one stone, my multitasking game is strong too!)

If laundry isn’t the most dauting task of the history of dreadful chores I absolutely don’t want to do, then I don’t know what is. On the other hand, this dish is super easy to make, healthy and it can be made ahead of time so you have it ready when you come home ravenous from work/university/etc… making you feel like you’re not that hopeless of an adult project #win.

I mean, my laundry skills suck and I haven’t vacuumed for longer than I’d like to admit BUT I still get to eat nutritious and balanced meals everyday. See mum, see? I do know how to adult.

But really, these noodles couldn’t be easier to make, and they sure taste better than anything that comes in a package! Plus you get to use whichever veggies you have in your fridge, making sure that no food goes to waste.

Do yourself a favour and include these on your next weekly meal plan. And then come help me with laundry because I don’t think my student budget can afford another pair of compression socks.

    Yes vegan and gluten free and YESSS tofu! I am feeling guilty looking at this as I’m sick and will totally be calling in Chinese takeaway today… not feeling up to cooking, but let me tell you, when I’m up and running, this will be the first thing I make! Pinned 🙂

    Looks so good! I have a tip that may work to motivate you to do your washing. When I’m at uni I pile my washing all around the floor in my room (instead of in the washing basket) where everyone can see it when they come in. I am pretty much a neat freak so after a little while I become so embarrassed by people looking at my dirty laundry when they come in that I am forced to do my washing!
