Crispy Tofu and Asparagus Noodle Bowl

"Asparagus season is coming to an end, it was good while it lasted! In the photo: udon noodles, asparagus, and tofu. The tofu was marinated in with soy sauce, coconut aminos, sriracha, rice vinegar and hoisin sauce. I just cooked the asparagus on the stove top with pink salt, black pepper, furikake, and a little bit of sesame oil. Be sure not to overcook, they taste better with a crunch to them. #plantbasespath ?"
