Japanese udon noodles, which cook in a matter of minutes, soak up all of the slightly spicy umami-rich sauce in this stir-fry. Cubes of golden tofu make the meat-free supper substantial. You can also use cubed chicken or pork. Cost: $2/serving

  • Prep time 30 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings


  • 1 pkg (420 g) firm tofu drained and cut in 3⁄4-inch (2 cm) cubes
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pkg (227 g) cremini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 3 cups bite-size broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Asian chili sauce (such as sriracha)
  • 3 pkg (each 200 g) Udon noodles
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil


Pat tofu dry and toss gently with cornstarch to coat. In wok or large nonstick skillet, heat all but 2 tsp of the vegetable oil over medium-high heat; cook tofu, turning occasionally, until crisp and golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove to paper towel-lined plate to drain. Set aside.

In same wok, heat remaining vegetable oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry mushrooms, garlic and ginger until mushrooms are beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add broccoli; stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Stir in hoisin sauce, chili sauce and 3/4 cup water; bring to boil.

Reduce heat to low; add noodles, tossing gently to coat. Simmer, stirring gently, until sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Add tofu, green onions and sesame oil; cook, tossing to coat, for 1 minute.
