Pea Noodles and Tofu Stir fry



I love warm salads or stir fry's as they are easy to make and can be really satisfying. They are the perfect choice to cook after a hard day at work as very little preparation is required. I have recreated this Pea noddle and Tofu stir fry, using the ingredients from Marks and Spencer's who have recently launched  their new vegan and vegetarian range. I had the opportunity to try this recipe at a recent launch hosted by Marks and Spencers for Veganuary.  They were showcasing their new products and vegan wine. In the range they have many new stir fry sauces and prepacked vegetable packs, egg free noodles and gluten free options too.


The noodles in the recipe are made with pea and lentils making them high in protein, together with the green edamame beans and stir fry vegetables and the tofu, this dish has the perfect balance of textures and flavours.

I have adapted the recipe to my taste,the original recipe can be found here.

NB- To ensure that the tofu holds its shape, pat it dry with lots of kitchen paper to remove any excess liquid, dry and then cut it into cubes. This is very important to avoid it breaking when shallow frying.


My fellow blogger friend Heidi also attended the launch with me to check her blog post about her experience.

  14. This looks really tasty! I really like tofu and to have it with pea noodles would be awesome! If I may make a suggestion to the recipe, I'd coat the tofu in hoisin sauce and then grill them before adding it to the noodles.

  33. Tofu!Yeey! I once had a tofu stir fry bite in one of the 5-star hotels here in Kenya and I loved it...I mean..it's kinda rare here...anyway, I can imagine how this delicious meal you got us here is! The pictures are too lovely! So yummy!

  34. Yum! I can imagine the fragrant, tangy kick of the yuzu-infused dressing. It's one of my favorite citrus fruits. Plus chili powder adds a fiery layer that will deepen the flavor of this dish. :)

  35. Oh yummy I love anything and everything with tofu so I would totally love these. I never heard of pea noodles before though, need to try making this.

  36. I actually had no idea that M&S had a vegan range but I applaud them for supporting Veganuary and I am especially inspired by your tofu stir fry. I am very particular about how I like my Tofu as it can get rubbery, I like it nice and crispy like in a context of a stirfry like you have created it here. And I love the addition of the pea noodles as well that is so innovative!

  37. Sounds delicious! Stir-fries have always been a go-to at our house on busy weeknights. In fact, my husband has come up with some really great combinations using leftovers. He recently made a tofu and pineapple stir fry using fresh pineapple, and a package of Asian stir fry vegetables. He seasoned it with lite soy sauce, sesame oil, and some sort of hot sauce. He never uses recipes and his dishes are super. x
