Step 2

In a sealable container, mix together the Blackbean Sauce, Soya Sauce & Black Vinegar

Step 3

Dice the tofu and add to the container with the marinade. Give it a shake to distribut the marinade evenly

Step 4

Leave to marinade for at least half an hour. The longer you leave it, the tastier it will be!

Step 6

Open up your container and add the cornstarch. Close the lid and shake it so that the cornstarch evenly coats the tofu

Add the rest of the tofu in batches, removing them once crispy to a clean paper towel to drain.

Step 9

Don't throw away the rest of the marinade! You need it for the noodles!

Step 10

Once you have cooked the tofu, wipe out the wok with a paper towel.

Step 11

Add all the veggies so they sizzle and start to cook

Step 12

Add 2-3 tablespoons of water to the container you marinated the tofu in. Give it a swish.

Step 13

Add the noodles to the wok, and the contents of the marinade container. Cook for a minute or two.

Step 14

Distrubute the noodles onto your plates, and top with the crispy tofu.
