Udon, Tofu and Chili Sauce

Combine broth, 2 cups water, ginger, garlic, and 3 T soy sauce in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for ten minutes.

Mix the remaining 1 T soy sauce with 1 T chili sauce in a small bowl and set aside.

Cut tofu crosswise into 8 slabs, each 1″ thick. Heat oil in large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Cook tofu, turning once, until lightly brown (8ish minutes). Remove from heat, pour soy chili mixture over tofu, and turn to gently coat.

Add noodles and carrots to broth, cook until just tender – 3 or 4 minutes. Stir in the spinach and cook until wilted. Ladle noodles, broth and vegetables into bowls and top with tofu. Drizzle chili sauce on top.
