Pan-Fried Tofu with Zucchini, Carrot and Black Bean Sesame Noodles

Normally, I don’t make a lot of cold dishes or pasta salads but the weather has been so hot lately, it seemed like a good idea. Of course, I still have to deal with the heat in the kitchen since this is a cooked dish even if it’s served cold but at least it feels […]
