easy Sweet, Spicy, and Saucy Noodles 🍜 (haha should we just call these the S3 noods?!) these were so easy to put together and they’re a perfect blend of sweet and spicy. You can also of course adjust the sauce measurements depending on your flavour preference, and add in tofu and whatever vegetables you’d like.
This is one of those really flexible noodle recipes that you can make with whatever noodles you have too. I used instant ramen noodles (of course those that don’t come with sauce packets) and added some tofu and cabbage. You’ll find the recipe below 🙂 enjoy!
Sweet, Spicy, and Saucy Noodles
Good for 2 servings
2 (70g each) uncooked ramen bricks or other noods of choice*
1 250g block extra firm tofu
Chopped cabbage or other veggies
Spring onions and sesame seeds, for topping
3/4 cup room temperature vegetable broth or water
3 to 4 tbsp soy sauce, adjust according to desired taste
1.5 tbsp corn starch
2 to 3 tbsp maple syrup or sugar, adjust according to desired sweetness
1/2 tbsp gochujang or korean chili paste, feel free to sub with other chili sauce and adjust according to desired heat
1 tbsp lemon juice or rice vinegar, adjust according to desired sourness
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tbsp sesame oil or neutral oil
1. Mix all sauce ingredients in bowl until well incorporated. set aside. Boil a pot with water. Add in noodles & cook until still very chewy.
2. While the noodles are cooking, heat a pan. Saute veggies or tofu in some oil. I pan-fried my tofu until lightly golden brown and crisp. Afterwards, add in the sauce. Leave to simmer over medium heat.
3. Add in the noodles and mix in the sauce* (see notes). Cook over med. high heat until the noodles absorb the sauce & sauce thickens. Season with salt to taste, if needed.
4. Garnish w/ sesame seeds and spring onions, if desired. Enjoy while hot!
