Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Roughly chop the chestnut mushrooms 

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped mushrooms and garlic and cook for 3 min or until the mushrooms have started to soften

2 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Meanwhile, drain the tofu and pat it dry 

Chop the tofu roughly

Add the chopped tofu to a bowl with the softened mushroom, chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and a generous pinch of salt

Blitz with a stick blender until a rough paste forms – this is your tofu ball mix

3 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Roll the tofu mix into 10 [20] balls (clean hands is the best way!)

Add the tofu balls to a greased baking tray

Brush each tofu ball with vegetable oil and put the tray in the oven for 25 min or until lightly golden and crisp

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

4 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Rip the leaves off the spring greens, discard the tough stalks, then layer the leaves over each other, roll them up & slice into thin strips

Top, tail, peel and grate the carrot[s]

Trim, then slice the spring onions finely

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely 

 

5 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Add the wholewheat noodles to a pot and cover with boiled water until fully submerged

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 5-7 min until tender with a slight bite, then drain and return them to the pot until serving

 

6 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Meanwhile, heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the soy sauce and agave nectar with 50ml [100ml] cold water and cook for 3 min or until the mix thickens slightly

Once thickened, transfer to a small bowl – this is your sticky soy sauce

7 Glazed Tofu Balls With Noodle & Veg Stir-Fry

Return the pan to a high heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the chopped spring greens and cook for 2 min

Add the noodles, grated carrots, sesame oil and the juice of the lime[s] 

Tip: roll the lime[s] on a hard surface to release more juice!

Season with a generous pinch of salt and give everything a good mix up – these are your vegetable noodles
