Gluten Free Sesame Noodles

Adapted from Deborah Madison.

This is for the quick dinner, the pot luck, the throw what's left of the veggies, kinda meal. Of course, they do not have to be gluten free. Sub out your favorite noodle if you like. Not all gluten free noodles are worthy of a recipe. My fav are THESE. My husband only goes for gluten free spaghetti noodles in this one particular dish, so that's sayin' somethin'.

At the very end of cooking the second side, add the coconut aminos and toss the tofu to coat. Reduce the heat and continue to cook until crispy. Approx 5 more minutes.
