Tofu Chow Mein- serves 4-5
450g Extra Firm Plain Tofu
1/2 Tbsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp garlic paste
1/2 tsp black garlic sugar (or dark muscavado)
2 Tbsp soy sauce
400g bag of ready-to-use stir fry vegetables
250-300g medium egg noodles
Preheat oven to 190°C
Wrap tofu block in a clean tea towel and place a very heavy object on top. Do this for the time it takes for your oven to heat up
Meanwhile whisk all marinade ingredients together in a bowl
When oven is ready, unwrap tofu and pat dry with a piece of kitchen towel. Cut into large cubes and put into the marinade, ensuring all tofu is completely covered.
Place on a non-stick baking sheet for around 20 mins until golden brown.
Whilst that is cooking, prepare the noodles as per instructions on the packet and drain when ready.
Once the tofu is ready and out of the oven, in a large pan, add a little oil and the bag of vegetables. Stir fry for around 5-8 mins. When they are nearly ready, add sesame oil and soy sauce to taste.
Add in the cooked noodles and tofu and mix carefully as you don't want to break up the tofu.
Serve in bowls.
