Healthy Noodle Recipe with Tofu

Must Try Healthy Noodle Recipe for a Quick Meal

Weekdays are hectic for a stay-at-home mom like me. I’m sure a lot of parents, moms and dads alike, can relate with that. Not only do I have to maintain the house, but I also have to cook meals and attend to my work. I think time management skills really play an important part when you’re working from home. Apart from that, you have to be creative with the meals that you cook. All meals should be budget-friendly yet still delicious and nutritious. One of the easy and budget-friendly recipes that I made is this healthy noodle recipe with tofu and vegetables.

A Healthy Noodle Recipe for a Quick Meal

This healthy noodle recipe only takes less than half an hour to make. Perfect for busy weekdays especially when you have a lot on your hands. I can it this by itself because it is already a complete meal. My sons eat it with rice though — can you imagine that? Well, they really have an appetite and they have high metabolism so I guess the extra carbs won’t hurt.

If you’re trying to maintain a low-carb diet, you can replace the vermicelli with shirataki noodles. You can also use low-sodium soy sauce or tamari for a healthier alternative. If you’re a vegan, you can use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.

You can get creative with this recipe and adjust the seasoning and the veggies. Normally I use spinach because it is readily available. In Asian countries, bokchoy is easier to obtain than spinach.

Tofu is a good source of protein. You can also substitute the tofu with other forms of lean protein such as chicken breasts. Better yet, you can have both tofu and chicken in this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 300 grams extra-firm tofu

For the Marinade:

  • 4 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 piece thumb-sized ginger peeled and grated or finely chopped
  • 2 pieces garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 2 tsp sesame oil

For the Noodles:

  • 200 grams vermicelli rice noodles
  • 3 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • spring onions finely chopped
  • 2 pieces garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 piece red chili de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 piece thumb-sized ginger peeled and grated
  • 200 grams snap peas
  • 200 grams bok choy or spinach
  • 1 piece large red pepper sliced
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp coriander finely chopped

Instructions

  • Drain the tofu by placing it in between sheets of paper towels and place something heavy on top to gently squeeze out the excess moisture. Let it drain for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix all marinade ingredients. Cut the drained tofu into small cubes and mix it with the marinade. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain and soak in a bowl of cold water.
  • In a non-stick frying pan, heat the vegetable oil and sesame oil over high heat.
  • Add ginger, garlic, spring onions, and chili. Stir-fry for a minute.
  • Add the snap peas, bok choy or spinach, and pepper. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the cooked noodles. Add lime juice and soy sauce; toss well to combine. Cook for about 1-2 minutes until the noodles are heated through.
  • Fry the tofu in a non-stick pan or wok until crispy. When the tofu is almost cooked, add the rest of the marinade and let it simmer for about 10 seconds. Transfer to a plate or bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Divide the noodles into bowls. Top with the tofu and juices and garnish with coriander.
