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

✔️ 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!!
