Chow mein noodles in garlic soy sauce
Ingredients: (for 4 persons)
- 250 g noodles
- 200 g firm tofu (diced) – If you like tofu with more crisp cover it with 2 tbsp spelt flour before frying
- 3-4 tbsp sesame oil for frying (or vegetable oil)
- 1 large leek
- 1 medium carrot
- 1 zuchinni
- 1 green pepper (you can use any color, I prefer the green one)
- 3 large garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
- chilli flakes
- Dice tofu and cut all the vegetables.
- Put tofu squares in a bowl and cover it with 1-2 tbsp light soy sauce. Mix well and add some flour if you want your tofu crispy.
- Fry tofu in a pan with some oil (I used sunflower and sesame oil) untill it gets just a little crispy.
- Put the noodles in hot water (prepare as said on the package, but usually it takes only 3 minutes to soften).
- Take out the tofu and put it aside so you can sautee the vegetables.
- When vegetables soften, add minced garlic cloves and soy sauce.
- Add noodles, turmeric and some chilli flakes (optional) and stirr. Add some water if the sauce is too strong and if you like softer noodles.
- Add the tofu, stirr again and serve.
You can always add some soy sauce if you like more salt and this recipe is a bit spicy so if you like it milder just use less chilli.
