Mushroom, Tofu & Spinach Noodle Soup

Yields4 ServingsCook Time30 mins

 300g firm stir fry tofu, cut into 1cm-thick slices
 4 tbs kecap manis
 2 tbs sweet chilli sauce
 2 tbs peanut oil
 5 green onions, thinly sliced
 2 garlic cloves, crushed
 2 tbs grated fresh ginger
 400g flat mushrooms, sliced
 4 cups reduced salt vegetable stock
 400g fresh rice noodles
 1 bunch English spinach, leaves shredded

Place tofu, in a single layer, in a ceramic dish. Combine 2 tbs kecap manis and 1 tbs sweet chilli sauce and spoon over tofu. Turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes if time permits. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan on medium-high. Brush pan with a little oil and cook tofu, in two batches, for 3-4 minutes each side or until caramelised. Transfer to a plate, keep warm.


Heat a wok over medium-high heat until hot. Add 3 tsp oil, onions, garlic and ginger and stir-fry 30 seconds until aromatic. Add remaining oil and mushrooms, stir-fry 3-5 minutes until almost tender. Stir in stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5 minutes.


Stir in remaining kecap manis, chilli sauce and noodles and simmer further 5 minutes until noodles warmed through. Add spinach and cook 1 minute until wilted.


Cut tofu slices and put into base of serving bowls. Ladle over soup and serve.
