making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Sweet Sesame Soba Noodles
For the sesame sauce:

2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon ground blast pepper

4 ounces dried soba noodles
1 12-ounce package extra firm tofu, cut into 1/2" cubes
1/2 large red bell pepper, seeded, cored and cut into strips
1/2 sweet or white onion, cut into strips

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
Combine all sauce ingredients in a nonreactive bowl; whisk to combine and set aside.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until al dente, about 5-6 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high and add 1 tablespoon oil. Add tofu pieces and cook for 5 minutes, turning the tofu with kitchen tongs about every minute so that all sides of each piece get brown and crispy. Remove tofu from pan and set aside on a paper towel to drain. Leave the pan on the heat.

Add remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and add onion, mushrooms, bell pepper, green beans and carrot and stir-fry for 5 minutes, until veggies begin to become tender but still retain come crunch and texture. Add noodles and tofu back to the pan, stir in sauce and cook for one more minute.

Remove from heat; serve and enjoy!
