Mi Goreng is a delicious fried noodle dish from Indonesia. It’s slightly spicy and only takes 15 minutes to make!
- Splash of oil (around 1 teaspoon)
- 1 onion - diced
- 5 cloves garlic - finely chopped.
- 1-2 red chillies - thinly sliced.
- 200g carrots - cut into thin slices or batons.
- 1 red pepper - cut into thin slices or batons.
- 350g tofu (one block) - pressed and cut into small chunks.
- 200g bean sprouts.
- 1 Chinese cabbage (600g) - shredded.
- 3 tbsp kecap manis (see notes below, if you don't have this)
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 4 nests of wheat noodles or 200g of rice noodles - cooked and rinsed in cold water
- Pop a splash of oil in the wok over a high heat and then fry the tofu until it starts to brown. When it goes golden, add 1 tbsp kecap manis and stir to make sure it’s evenly coated. Cook for a couple of minutes more then remove from the pan and set aside.
- In the same wok, stir fry the chopped onion in another splash of oil until soft.
- Next, add the garlic and chilli and cook for about a minute. Keep it moving to prevent burning and make sure the heat isn’t up too high.
- Now add the carrots and the pepper, for one minute.
- Add the cabbage and cook until wilted. This should take about 2 minutes.
- Chuck the noodles and the tofu in. Mix everything together and add the remaining kecap manis sesame oil and soy sauce.
- Lastly, add the beansprouts, stir fry for one minute. They shouldn’t wilt, they should still be crunchy when served.
- Serve with rice crackers, sesame seeds, slices of fresh tomato and cucumber and a vegan fried egg.
- If you don’t have kecap manis, increase the soy sauce by 1 tablespoon and add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.
- This noodle dish is slightly spicy. Use just one chilli if you’d like it milder.
- We recommend using firm or extra firm tofu for this meal. If using firm tofu, ensure to press it in a tofu press for two hours before cooking.
- Generally, noodles don’t freeze well, so we’d recommend eating these fresh! However, they keep well in the fridge for two days.
