Green Stir Fry With Smoked Tofu

As I mentioned in my last post, I got loads of broccoli in my latest veg box and I also got some chinese leaves. The logical decision was to make a stir fry. Especially as Mr Hef had taken me to Waitrose (it's like ingredient kryptonite in there) and I found some fancy smoked tofu, which I thought would go perfectly. I brought some Vietnamese rice noodles with no instructions on for this (luckily the internet helped me with how to cook them), but fresh will also be good (and quicker) and I used the sauce I always make, but you can use any stir fry sauce. So yeah, super easy, probably healthy, green stir fry!

Serves 2.

For the sauce:

2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp orange juice

For the stir fry:

2 bundles/1 pack of rice noodles
Olive oil
1 pack of smoked tofu chopped in to chunks
1 small head of broccoli, chopped in to little florets
1 head of chinese leaves, sliced into ribbons
1 clove of garlic, minced
A handful of edamame beans

  1. Start by soaking the rice noodles in a bowl of warm water for half an hour (if using dried) and make up the sauce by mixing the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and orange juice together in a small bowl. 
  2. Once the noodles are all soaked, pop your tofu in to an oiled pan (I like to use a griddle) and fry gently, turning it over when needed. 
  3. While the tofu's frying away, pour a little oil in to a wok/pan and stir fry the broccoli for around 3 minutes. 
  4. Add the chinese leaves and garlic and stir fry for a further few minutes, then drain the noodles and add them to the pan along with the edamame beans and stir fry for 2 more minutes.
  5. Transfer the stir fry to a bowl and top it with the tofu, then pour your sauce all over and chow down!


I want to try this stir fry, because my friend told me that stir fry is very delicious to eat and very healthy. And I think this recipe is perfect for me to taste the stir fry.
