𝐈𝐍𝐆𝐑𝐄𝐃𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐒 👩🏻🍳 (serves 4-5)
✔️ 1 red onion
✔️ 2 garlic cloves
✔️ 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
✔️ 1/2-1 red chilli
✔️ 500g mushrooms*
✔️ 400g tenderstem broccoli
✔️ 300g beansprouts
✔️ 1 pack of smoked tofu
✔️ 400g dried noodles (egg-free)
✔️ 4 tbsp sesame oil
✔️ 4 tbsp soy sauce
✔️ A handful of peanuts/almonds
✔️ Bunch of coriander
✔️ Juice of a lime
*For the mushrooms, I used a mix of button, chestnut, nameko and shiitake, but you can swap them for your favourite!
1️⃣ PREP – Mince the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli. Dice the smoked tofu & mushrooms into small cubes. Chop the Tenderstem broccoli in half if necessary.
2️⃣ Prepare a pan of salted water for your noodles in the bowl. When the water boils, add the noodles & cook according to the packet instructions. Rinse with cold water after cooking and set aside.
3️⃣ Meantime, heat the sesame oil in a frying pan/large wok over medium heat. Add onion and cook for a couple of minutes, until it softens.
4️⃣ Then add the ginger, garlic, & chilli, and cook for a few minutes, adding a small splash of water if necessary.
5️⃣ Add the mushrooms, smoked tofu & 2 tbsp soy sauce to the pan. Fry for 10 minutes, or until the liquid has been reduced.
6️⃣ Lastly, add the broccoli, leftover soy sauce & the juice of half a lime. Toss in the noodles and stir over high heat until the broccoli is crisp & the noodles are warm.
Serve it with the remaining lime juice, crumbled peanuts/almonds, and coriander on top. Enjoy!!
