A Sriracha marinade my new favorite way of prepping tofu for anything.

I don’t know why using Sriracha in my tofu marinade has never occurred to me before. I couldn’t stop snacking on the tofu after it was baked in the oven.

I mean, I normally find myself snacking on cooked tofu cubes, but the Sriracha gave it a huge boost in taste.

The tofu cubes can be made ahead of time and you can use them in anything else you want to as well. Toss them into your salad, stir fry dishes, or just snack on them alone!

For my veggies, I wanted a mix of colors, so I went for a red bell pepper, carrots and snow peas. You can really use any vegetables you like.
Feel free to add greens like spinach, bok choy or kale. I stayed away from the greens this time because I wanted all my veggies to have a slight crunch.

Snow peas, bell peppers and carrots are the best for that.

The sauce in this lo mein dish is fairly simple and doesn’t really require fancy ingredients. If you don’t have mirin, you can substitute dry sherry or rice wine vinegar or just skip it all together.
