I don’t think I have ever found a noodle dish that I didn’t like. In fact, my beloved thinks that I’m perpetually in a noodle crave.
Well, my dear friends, he is right! Don’t you hate when someone you’re close to know you OVERLY well? It could be a good thing but it could be a bad thing too. Especially when I am up to know no good, like a sneaky purchase of expensive handbags or having naugthy cravings like McDonalds’ quarter pounder or KFC’s wicked wings.
All I can say that my noodle craving is not as naughty as the former ones which I’ve mentioned. 😉
What I love about this noodle dish I am sharing today are it requires minimal preparation and cooking time, as well as it’s meat free should you wish for a lighter meal. I also like that it is delicious eaten hot or cold. I actually had the leftover cold which reminded me of the Asian noodle salad I had at Fress Cafe not too long ago. So this could be something you can make this in large quantity (depending the size of your family) and any leftover will make an excellent packed lunch. Ooh, don’t you love a delicious packed lunch (that is not a sandwich) to work?
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ¼ cup Kikoman soy sauce
- 2 Tbsps sesame oil
- A tsp white pepper
- Cooking oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- A bunch of broccolini - about 7 stalks, trimmed & cut into pieces
- A bunch of bok choy - about 3 bok choys, trimmed & cut into pieces
- 2 Tbsps water
- A pinch of salt
- 200g honey soy marinated tofu (used Soyco brand), sliced
- 450g fresh Hokkien Noodles
- 2 Tbsps sesame seeds
- 2 spring onions (scallions), thinly sliced
- In a small bowl/jug, whisk all the sauce ingredients with a fork until well combined. Set aside,
- In a stir fry pan, heat up 2 tsps oil. When the oil is hot, add garlic and saute over low-medium heat until it becomes aromatic.
- Quickly, add broccolini and boy choy with 2 Tbsps of water and a pinch of salt. Saute for a minute or until the the vegetables have just turned bright green.
- Add tofu and noodles (see note) and toss until heated through over medium heat.

Break the noodles up by hand, there's no need to blanch them in hot water.
