“These noodles help boost fibre, while the tofu and edamame give satiating protein.” – Amanda Ursell, nutritionist.
- 14.1g (2.4g saturated)
- 50.6g (5.4g sugars)
- 6.5g fibre
- 4 nests wholewheat noodles (we used Blue Dragon)
- 3 tbsp dark soy sauce, plus extra to taste
- 3-4cm fresh ginger, grated
- Grated zest and juice 1 lime, plus wedges to serve
- 2 garlic cloves, grated
- Bunch fresh coriander, stalks finely chopped, leaves roughly chopped
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 200g tofu, sliced (we used Dragonfly marinated tofu)
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- 200g frozen edamame beans
- 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.
- 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.
- Add another splash of oil to the pan along with the frozen edamame beans. Add the soy/ginger/garlic sauce and heat for 1-2 minutes, then add the noodles and toss well to combine. Top with the tofu, sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve with lime wedges and soy sauce.
