Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
- 2 servings of dried noodles of your choice (I used Wu-Mu dried noodles)
- 1 pack firm tofu, drained and mashed
- 1/4 cup fresh Thai basil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
- 1 tbsp stir fry sauce
- 1 tbsp Vegan 'fish' sauce
- 2 tbsp coconut amino
- few Thai chili for 🌶️
- shredded butter lettuce
- sesame oil
- salt to taste
Cook noodles based on package instructions.
In the meantime, pan fry mashed tofu in a heated pan with no oil until golden brown (this gives tofu a chewier texture), push aside.
Then, add 3 teaspoons sesame oil and sauté garlic until fragrant. Stir in 'fish' sauce, coconut amino, Thai chili, basil and cook for 2 minutes until tofu absorbs all the sauce, turn off heat.
At this time, your noodles should be done, drain well and add noodles to the tofu mixture.
Drizzle dark soy sauce, stir fry sauce and toss noodles using a tong and chopsticks until well combined.
Serve warm with butter lettuce, slurp away 😆
