Method

  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.

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.
