Sesame noodles with tofu

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time2 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time17 mins

I have been wanting to try tofu for ages now. Then I got thinking about going the whole hog and make a tofu dish, but ensuring it was vegan too. Nothing like jumping in the deep end! As it turns out it wasn't to difficult, it was created with good reviews too.

Watch this space Dad Does Vegan and will do it again soon.

bowl of tofu noodles

 300 g Firm Tofu, drained and cubed
 2 tbsp Soy sauce
 300 g Vegetables (I used a packet of stir fry veg, with broccoli, mini sweetcorn, sugar snap peas)
 1 Clove Garlic, thinly sliced
 Small piece of ginger, peeled and grated
 250 g Wholewheat Noodles
 1 tbsp Sesame seed
 1 tbsp Sesame oil, plus a drizzle more to serve

I started by cooking the noodles as per the pack instructions. Once cooked, I drained and left.

Whilst the noodles were draining, I drained and cut the tofu and plonked in a bowl with soy sauce and half the oil. I then heated the remainder of the oil in a wok. I chucked the vegetables, ginger and garlic in and stir-fried for a couple of minutes. I then added a couple of tablespoons of water and stir-fried for another minute.

At this point, I added the noodles, sesame seeds and the soy sauce from the tofu to the stir-fry. A couple of minutes later I added the tofu. I then simple covered the wok with tin foil and let the tofu warm through for a few minutes. Finally I carefully mixed the tofu with the noodles before serving with a drizzle of sesame oil over the top.
