Speedy vegetable noodles with tofu

05 MAY 2014
Tofu is a delicious alternative to meat – and it’s just one of the highlights in this sizzling medley of flavours.

Serves: 4
Ready in 25 minutes


350g dried egg noodles
3 tbsp light soy sauce
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2cm piece of root ginger, peeled and finely grated
1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
Low calorie cooking spray
200g mangetout, trimmed and halved
100g shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 red pepper, halved, deseeded and thinly sliced
Bunch of spring onions, sliced diagonally
1 pak choi, roughly chopped
1 level tbsp sweet chilli sauce
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
300g firm tofu (plain or naturally smoked), cut into large cubes


Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions then drain and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the light soy sauce, garlic, ginger and Chinese five-spice powder and set aside.

Spray a large non-stick wok or frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add all the vegetables apart from the pak choi and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until just tender. Add the garlic and ginger mixture and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the noodles, pak choi, sweet chilli sauce, dark soy sauce and tofu pieces and toss together for 3-4 minutes. Serve hot in warmed bowls.
