Rice Noodles with Tofu and Bok Choy

Usually we like quick Asian tofu-noodle dishes, but this one is just really boring. It was bland and the noodles kind of clumped together. It's too bad because it only took like 10 minutes to make. This is not a make again.

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

Cook noodles in boiling water 6 minutes; drain. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, oil, and crushed red pepper, stirring well with a whisk.
