Sweet, Spicy, and Saucy Noodles
Good for 2 servings
2 (70g each) uncooked ramen bricks or other noods of choice*
1 250g block extra firm tofu
Chopped cabbage or other veggies
Salt to taste
Spring onions and sesame seeds, for topping
3/4 cup room temperature vegetable broth or water
3 to 4 tbsp soy sauce, adjust according to desired taste
1.5 tbsp corn starch
2 to 3 tbsp maple syrup or sugar, adjust according to desired sweetness
1/2 tbsp gochujang or korean chili paste, feel free to sub with other chili sauce and adjust according to desired heat
1 tbsp lemon juice or rice vinegar, adjust according to desired sourness
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tbsp sesame oil or neutral oil
1. Mix all sauce ingredients in bowl until well incorporated. set aside. Boil a pot with water. Add in noodles & cook until still very chewy.
2. While the noodles are cooking, heat a pan. Saute veggies or tofu in some oil. I pan-fried my tofu until lightly golden brown and crisp. Afterwards, add in the sauce. Leave to simmer over medium heat.
3. Add in the noodles and mix in the sauce* (see notes). Cook over med. high heat until the noodles absorb the sauce & sauce thickens. Season with salt to taste, if needed.
4. Garnish w/ sesame seeds and spring onions, if desired. Enjoy while hot!
*I transferred the noodles directly from the pot of water to the pan so if you’re using drained noodles and find them a bit dry, add 2-3 tbsp water, as needed & leave til the sauce thickens.
