Ingredients

  • 4 nests wholewheat noodles (we used Blue Dragon)

Method

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the noodles according to the pack instructions. Drain and reserve a cupful of the cooking water. In a small bowl mix the soy sauce, ginger, lime zest and juice, garlic and coriander stalks with 4 tbsp of the noodle cooking water.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying a pan or wok with a splash of oil and cook the tofu for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, turning to coat. Set aside and wipe out the pan.
