  • 1 tablespoon thick dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon *stir fry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegan *’fish’ sauce

Instructions

  1. Cook noodles based on package’s instructions, drain & toss in a little oil to prevent noodles from sticking together.
  2. Meanwhile, cook mashed tofu (be sure they are dry) in a heated non-stick pan with 1 tablespoon oil until slightly brown, then push to the side of the pan.
  3. Add 2-3 toasted sesame oil, then garlic & sauté until aromatic. Stir in soy sauce, ‘fish’ sauce, Thai chili, basil & continue to cook for 1 minute until tofu absorbs all the sauce, turn off heat.
  4. Add noodles to the tofu mixture, then drizzle with dark soy sauce & stir fry sauce. Quickly toss noodles using a pair of tongs & chopsticks until well combined. Season accordingly, if needed.
  5. Serve warm with butter lettuce.
