Awesome Vegan Chow Mein with Veges & Tofu


  • 3 tbsp rice bran oil (or canola, sunflower etc)
  • 1/2 brown onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1″ nub ginger, crushed
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced, diagonally
  • 1 small head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • handful of mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2-3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 300g marinated tofu chunks
  • 85g dried chow mein noodles



Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook noodles according to instructions. Cover and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a frying pan, over medium-high heat, fry the tofu chunks in a little oil. When heated through, cover and set pan aside.

Heat rice bran oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat for 20 seconds or so. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for 1 minute – regularly remove the wok from heat for a few seconds, continuing to stir, to prevent garlic from burning if you need to.

Add onion and cook for 4 minutes, stirring regularly. Add carrot and cook for 2 minutes. Add broccoli and cook 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms, green peas, soy sauce, dark soy, sesame oil and sweet chilli sauce. Stir well to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.

Add noodles and gently combine with vegetables until sauce covers everything evenly. Stir through reheated tofu chunks, or serve them on the side.

Serves 1-3.
