About the Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 oz / 180 g fresh chow mein noodles

  • 2 tbsp oil

  • 2 garlic cloves , minced

  • 2 cups shredded Chinese cabbage

  • 1/2 cup carrot , julienned

  • 2 scallion/shallot stems , cut into 2"/4cm pieces

  • 1 cup bean sprouts


Tofu and Marinade



Sauce


  • 1/2 tbsp hoisin sauce

  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1/2 tbsp chilli garlic sauce or sriracha (optional)

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

  • 1/4 cup water

  • White pepper

Preparation

Step 1


Prepare noodles according to packet instructions (usually soaking it in boiling water).


Step 2


Combine tofu with marinade and set aside for 5 minutes.


Step 3


Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl.


Step 4


Heat oil in wok over high heat, add garlic and stir fry for 10 seconds.


Step 5


Add tofu and stir fry until starting to caramelise - about 1 minute. Stir fry gently so the tofu doesn't break.


Step 6


Add the cabbage and carrot and stir fry until the cabbage starts to wilt.


Step 7


Add the noodles, scallions/shallots, bean sprouts and sauce and stir fry until the noodles are warmed through and sauce evenly coats the noodles - about 1 minute. Don't cook it too much - the bean sprouts should still be quite crisp, not wilted.


Step 8


Serve immediately.
