Suppity sup buttercups! How’s everything going? Well, I hope!
If it’s not going that well, worry not, because I’ve got a bangin’ new recipe to share with you all, which will totally improve your otherwise poopy day. On the other hand, if you’re having the best day ever so far, buckle up because things are about to get even better.
GADO GADO NOODLES, my friend.
Crispy tofu covered in a sweet & spicy creamy sauce, mixed with shiitake mushrooms, red bell pepper and rice noodles: can it get any better? Oh yes, let me tell you more. This dish? Oh, it might look all fancy-schmancy with that gado gado sauce and all that jazz. The truth? It’s so easy to make that your poor student soul will not feel a bit of remorse when choosing to have gado gado for dinner for the 45th time in a week.
That’s a lot of dinners, you say.
But that’s how good these noodles are.
The steps are simple enough that even if you live in a constant exam-induced state of despair & desolation (hands up in the air, my fellow collage students!!!!!!), you will mbe able to push through, boil those noodles, lightly fry that tofu and whisk a couple of ingredients to make the sauce that you never knew you needed but won’t be able to live without from now on.
That’s gado gado sauce for you, my friends.
At least, my easy peasy lemon squeezy version, hey! I can imagine that the real deal is probably wayyyyyy more delish and those of you who have actually experienced the goodness of a traditional gado gado sauce are now rolling your eyes at me hardcore.
Sorry about that, but when the exams hit and the time runs short, this quick but delicious fix will do.
Especially when it’s so quick to make thanks to the new Ecomil Thai coconut milk. It hasn’t been on the market for a long, long while, but let me tell you how obsessed with it I am already!! It’s creamy, deliciously spiced and also free of nasties. A wholesome option for those of us who enjoy a quick fix of noodles but could do without all of the aditives and whatnot. Give it a go if you enjoy Asian-inspired cuisine!
Now, I should really really walk my talk and get back to my busy student life, because I have not one, but five exams next week. FIVE!!!!!!! Can a girl live???
At least I’ve got noodles #silverlining
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
