Ingredients

  • 300 g rice pasta (tagliatelle, noodles or vermicelli)
  • 2 or 3 carrots
  • 200 g mung bean sprouts
  • 200 g tofu plain
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 shallots
  • 10 g ginger fresh
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli optional (fresh or dried)

Sauce

  • 100 ml vegetable broth
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce shoyu or tamari

  • 1 tbsp tahin
  • pepper

Toppings

  • few sprigs of cilantro

  • 1 lime

Instructions

  • Soak the rice pasta for 10 minutes in water, then cook it for 5 minutes in boiling water, and drain (be careful not to overcook them).
  • Prepare the rest of the ingredients. Finely chop the garlic, shallots, and ginger. Cut the carrots in small sticks. Cut the tofu into small dices.
  • In a wok, brown the garlic, shallots, chilli and ginger in a little oil (sesame, sunflower or coconut according to your taste) for 3 minutes. Add the carrots and tofu, mix and sear for 5 minutes. Finally, add the mung bean sprouts (keep a few aside to put on top) and let it cook for 1 minute, then reduce the heat to minimum.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce: mix all the ingredients in a bowl using a whisk.
  • Add the rice pasta and the sauce, and mix gently. Fry for 2 minutes, then serve in bowls or soup plates, sprinkled with cilantro leaves, peanuts, and mung bean sprouts that you have set aside.

Notes

Notes:
You can add any vegetables of your choice (for example snow peas, or broad beans…), but also make non vegan version with shrimps, or chicken, whatever you feel like 🙂 If going for a non vegan option, you may had nuoc mam sauce and shrimp paste to your sauce for example.
Tips:
You can germinate your own mung bean sprouts. It’s very easy. Just buy dry mung beans and a germinator if you don’t have already one at home and wait for a few days!
