  • 300g pack straight-to-wok egg noodle (or use 2 sheets medium dried egg noodles and follow pack instructions)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seed
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil, plus extra to serve (optional)


  1. Cut the tofu into 12 pieces and mix with 1 tbsp of soy sauce and 1 tsp of sesame oil. Heat the remaining oil in a wok, then stir-fry the vegetables, garlic and ginger for 2 mins until the vegetables are starting to wilt. Drizzle with 2 tbsp water, then stir-fry for another min.

  2. Add the noodles, sesame seeds and soy sauce from the marinated tofu, then stir-fry for 2 mins. Now add the tofu, splash over the remaining soy sauce, then cover with a lid or baking sheet. Leave for 1 min so that the tofu heats through, then gently mix into the rest of the stir-fry.

  3. Lift the noodles and tofu into bowls and splash over a little more soy sauce and sesame oil to serve, if you like.

The tofu pieces were quite big and blocky, I'd mariate for longer and cut into 24 rather than 12 pieces. A bit bland, could certainly take a lot more flavouring. But pretty easy and my wife liked it so good from that point of view!

Really nice simple to make dish. I used mushrroms instead of tofu.

I tried eating the rest (with bok choi inside) after a few days: take care bok choi is NOT good after a three days!!

Easy but bland and unsatisfying.

I used leftover peppers and mushrooms, not green veg. I added half a chicken stock cube when boiling the noodles. Served it with salmon, not tofu. Family and 2&half year old loved it!

OK dish but doesn't blow away. I browned my tofu first, it didn't look like this recipe would get much flavour into it.
