Chili Udon Noodles with Fried Bok Choy and Marimated Tofu

After an inspiring visit to my local Asian supermarket, I wanted to make a dish that was a bit spicy but comforting. As Bok Choy is hands down one of my favourite vegetables, this recipe just had to include it. Feel free to adjust and add ingredients so this recipe to match your liking.

Udon Noodles (4 servings) 🍜

800 g Udon noodles
1 dl Oil
3 tsp Red chili powder
½ tsp Sichuan pepper
3 Cloves of garlic
1 tsp Salt

Fried Bok Choy 🥬

500 g Bok Choy
1 tbsp Oil
1 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tbsp Chili oil

Marinated Tofu 🍢

300 g Firm tofu
2 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tsp Red pepper powder
1 tbsp Oil


Sesame seeds

Making the noodles:

  1. Heat up the oil in a saucepan. Measure all of the spices and mince the garlic to a medium size bowl. Once the oil has heated up, pour the hot oil on top of the spices and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Cook the udon noodles according to the package instructions. Once the noodles have been cooked and drained, pour the oil and spice mix to the noodles and mix.

Making the fried bok choy:

  1. Wash and drain the bok choy thoroughly. TIP! Put baking soda in the water to clean the bok choy better. Slice the ends of the bok choys and place them to a pan.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan and start frying the bok choy on medium high heat for 3-5 minutes until the bok choy is slighly wilted but remains a bit crunchy.

Making the marinated tofu:

  1. Measure the soy sauce, red pepper powder and oil to a bowl. Slice the firm tofu to small 1 cm x 1 cm cubes and place to the marinade.
  2. Let the tofu marinade in the sauce for 5-15 minutes. Pour the contains of the bowl to a pan and fry the tofu until the cubes turn golden and crispy on the outside.

Finishing the dish:

  1. Put everything together by placing the noodles on the bottom of a bowl, followed by the tofu and bok choy. Garnish with sesame seeds and ENJOY 🧡
