• 3 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 aubergines, cut into small chunks
  • 4 nests medium egg noodles (about 250g)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • thumb-sized piece ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 160g pack marinated tofu pieces (we used Cauldron)
  • 225g frozen peas, defrosted
  • 3 spring onions, shredded


  • STEP 1

    Heat a wok over a high heat and add 2 tbsp of the oil. Throw in the aubergine and cook, stirring, for 8-10 mins or until it has browned and softened completely, then season. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following pack instructions.

  • STEP 2

    Remove the aubergine from the pan and add the remaining oil. Cook the garlic and ginger for 30 secs, then stir in the five-spice. Spoon in the soy and chilli sauce, stir and bubble for 30 secs.

  • STEP 3

    Throw in the tofu, peas and aubergines, and heat through. Add the noodles and toss everything together. Divide between bowls and scatter over the spring onions.
