How to make Tofu & Vegetable Satay Stir-fry

1. Blitz the sauce ingredients in your blender or food processor, adding a little water to thin the sauce to your preferred consistency. You can add more water at the cooking stage if necessary.

2. Put a little coconut oil in your wok and heat gently until melted.

3. Add the tofu to the wok and stir-fry until cooked, or the tofu is slightly golden.

4. Meanwhile cook your noodles according to the pack instructions.

5. Add the vegetables to your wok and keep on stir-frying. You want them nice and crunchy, so just a few minutes will do.

6. Add the sauce and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add more water at this stage if you need to.

7. Add the noodles to your wok and mix all the ingredients well.
