Tofu recipes are a dime a dozen, but unfortunately it takes some pretty mad tofu chops to get it to taste like anything. All too often, people are presented with a plate of tofu that leaves them yearning for meat and flavor. This dish will wipe away all your bean curd blues! We’ve amped up tofu with our spicy, dan dan noodles recipe. Creamy tahini, salty soy, sweet honey, and spicy sriracha coat the noodles. The firm tofu is cooked crispy and seasoned with the flavors of the Sichuan province of China. You too can love tofu!


  • 8 ounces Chinese egg noodles
  • 2 cups tofu (we used firm)
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 whole scallions (just use the green part, but don't throw away the white part)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • vegetable oil (staples)
  • ginger (optional)
  • peanuts (or cashews, optional)
  • Did you make this?

    1. Place a medium pot over high heat. Add water and bring to a boil for the noodles. Next, place a pan or wok over very high heat and coat with vegetable oil. Crumble up your tofu and add it to the pan.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the sriracha, honey, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and tahini to make the dressing. Grab 2 tablespoons of your boiling water from the stove and add it to your dressing. Stir to combine. Thinly slice the scallions. Add half of them to the dressing and reserve the other half for garnish.
    3. Toss your egg noodles into the pot of boiling water and cook until tender, about 4 minutes.

    This was delicious. I just added more veg to the recipe by stir frying some red bell pepper, shiitake mushrooms, and bok choy in the pan before adding crumbled tofu. The sauce is terrific.

    It is such an amazing and delicious dish!! As I’m not a big fan of extremely spicy food, I went on and switched Sriracha with Sweet Chili and it turned out just perfect! I also went about and added grated ginger and crushed peanuts to give the dish some personality and texture. Although it didn’t take me just 15 minutes to cook it, it actually is a great recipe! I will surely try it out again!

    Soooo good! The sauce was a little spicy and salty for my tastes so I added a bit of ketchup and hoisin! My bf is a meat eater so I marinated thin sliced pork in the same sauce I made for the noodles, and then cooked in the wok for him to add over top of his!

    this was good. not terribly difficult. couldn't figure out the garlic paste do i just used minced. would probably be elevated with some shredded veggies (like carrots... maybe some spinach or sweet peas?) will try with added veggies next time

    This was excellent I added the ginger and upped the garlic I also added broccoli and matchstick carrots. It was too spicy for my 10-year-old, though it was legit spicy! I also used Chinese egg noodle “nests” which have a really nice texture

    I love this recipie and the chef is awesome as well; straightforward and my best Asian dish to date. I made it with mostly buckwheat soba and a dash of crushed jarred ginger. Triple Yummly!

    Baked the tofu to make it crispy. My presentation was terrible, but the overall recipe was delicious.

    I made some substitute for tahini with peanut butter, and some sweet pepper as well as spaghetti sauce. It was very good.

    i doubled down on the honey and left out the nuts because i forgot them. i also substituted linguine because Trader Joes. it turned out really well, but could use some vegetables. 10/10 will make again probably once a week.
