I had so much fun making this delicious maple tofu & black bean noodle dish live on Instagram. For all of those you that missed it here is the recipe. This takes around 15 minutes to make, so is the perfect mid week dinner. 
Tofu provides all 9 of our essential amino acids, so is known as a complete protein. Very few plant sources contain all 9 essential amino acids, however if you have a variety of plant protein throughout the day you will get get all the amino acids you need.
