Instructions

Fry the Tofu
1
  • Boil a pot of salted water for the noodles.
  • Drain the tofu and chop into 2cm cubes. Pat dry with kitchen paper. Toss with a drizzle of oil, thai spice, ½ tsp salt (double for 4p) and pepper.
  • Place a pan over high heat with a glug of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the tofu until slightly crispy, 6-8 mins. Shift frequently to ensure it doesn't burn. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the tofu to a bowl and cover to keep warm. Reserve the pan to use later.
Cook the Noodles
2
  • When the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook until softened, 4-6 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a sieve and return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Drizzle with oil and toss to prevent sticking.
Get Prepped
3
  • Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Trim and halve the green beans.
Char the Veg
4
  • Return the empty pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the green beans.
  • Fry until slightly charred, 4-5 mins.
  • Add the grated garlic and fry until fragrant, another 2-3 mins.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Pour the gochujang (careful, it's spicy!), soy sauce, ketjap manis, 1 tsp sugar and 100ml water (double both for 4p) into the pan with the veg. 
  • Stir well to combine and bring to the boil.
  • Add the peas, cover and simmer until the veg is tender, 3-4 mins. 
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water to loosen the sauce if you feel it's become too thick.
  • Toss the cooked noodles through the sauce until warmed through.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Divide the spicy veg noodles between bowls.
  • Top with the crispy tofu.
  • Finish with a scattering of peanuts.
