Equipment

  • bowl
  • pan
  • spatula

Ingredients

  • 14 oz Fresh or Dried Lo Mein Noodles
  • 1 package Firm Tofu
  • 3 cups Assorted vegetables I used Broccoli, Bok choy, carrot, baby corn and snow peas
  • 4 Spring onion Thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves Garlic Finely minced
  • 2 teaspoon Ginger Finely grated
  • 2 tablespoon Corn starch
  • 4 tablespoon Soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Vegetarian Oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Red chili sauce Use based on your spice level
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • to taste Salt
  • 4 tablespoon Olive oil or any cooking oil =

Instructions

  • Cook the noodles based on the package directions. I used fresh noodles and hence it took me only a couple of minutes to cook the noodles. Drain the cooked noodles and keep them aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce, sugar, and hot sauce and mix well.
  • Drain the tofu and pat it dry. Cube the tofu and place it in a bowl. Sprinkle corn starch over the tofu and toss it.
  • In a wok or a large pan, heat 2 tablespoon of oil. Once the oil heats up, add the tofu pieces and fry them until golden brown on all sides. Remove it in a paper towel-lined bowl.
  • In the same pan, heat the remaining oil. Add the spring onion, ginger, and garlic and fry it on high heat for about 30 seconds.
  • Next, add the vegetables and fry it on high heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the leafy vegetable at the end and saute for a minute. I added my bok choy at the end.
  • Add the cooked noodles to the pan and then pour the sauce over it. Toss everything together and check for more sauce or spice.
