Ingredients

  • 1 medium/large carrot, peeled

Directions

  1. Dice the tofu and add it into a bowl with corn starch, mix until the tofu is well coated.
  2. Cut the vegetables using the “julienne” technique (or finely chop them if you don’t have time)
  3. Heat the olive oil in a non sticky pan and add the grated ginger. Stir fry for 1 minutes (be careful not to burn it) then add the vegetables.
  4. Stir fry for 5 minutes and add the soy sauce. Cook until soft but still firm.
  5. Meanwhile cook the noodles accordingly to the pack instructions.
  6. In another non sticky pan add the the tofu (drizzle some olive oil if needed) cook the tofu and once there is a crispy crust add the teriyaki sauce with 1 Tbsp of water. Stir well.
