  • 2 servings of fresh flat rice noodles [about 420g]
  • 5 oz [130g] firm tofu pressed, cut into desired size
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • ½ cup chopped Chinese chives
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • tablespoons sambal oelek or other chili sauce
  • oil for cooking
  • salt to taste



  • Cut tofu into your desired shapes, then simply pan fry them in an oiled non-stick pan until golden brown on all sides. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl until well-combined and set aside until ready to use.
  • In a heated non-stick pan with 1 tablespoon of oil, sauté garlic until aromatic, then add the sambal oelek and tofu and give it a quick stir.
  • Add in the noodles and sauce, then toss all ingredients until well-combined. Cook for another 30 seconds or so to allow the noodles to absorb all the sauces.
  • Finally, add in the veggies and toss again until the veggies are fully cooked through. Taste test and season accordingly.
  • Serve warm with a side of chili.
