Duration30 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Prep Time15 mins
Servings4 servings


  • 250 g Stir-fry veg or buy separate veg (eg pak choi, baby sweet corn, mange tout, broccoli, fresh chilli)
  • 250-300 g udon or soba noodles we used Yutaka, cooked according to the packet (if you want a quicker option, use straight-to-wok noodles)
  • 250 g firm tofu cut into small cubes, or use pre-marinated tofu chunks
Satay Sauce
  • tbsp toasted sesame oil use rapeseed as an alternative
  • ½ clove garlic roughly chopped
  • tbsp soya sauce use tamari for GF option
  • tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 125 g smooth peanut butter
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 150 ml water


Satay Sauce

  • Blend all ingredients until smooth. Do not heat up yet, set aside.


  • Drain then pat dry the tofu with kitchen roll or a clean tea towel. Fry in a little oil until golden, turning frequently. Add 1 tablespoon soya sauce, stir through then set aside.
  • In a large wok, fry the vegetables (also add straight-to-wok noodles at this stage if you’re making the quick version) on a med-high heat for a few minutes.
  • Cook the noodles according to the packet.
  • Heat up the satay sauce, adding a little more water if necessary as the sauce thickens as it heats.
  • Divide the noodles into 4 bowls then add a layer of stir fried veg, tofu and then satay sauce.
