These vegan Singapore noodles make for a healthy and delicious stir-fry dish that comes together in less than 30 minutes!
What are Singapore noodles?
Have you ever had Singapore noodles before? It’s a rice noodle stir-fry dish made with vermicelli noodles, curry powder, veggies and in the traditional dish some egg and often meat or prawns. The dish is slightly spicy from the curry powder, but not too spicy like a spicy Thai noodle dish.
Singapore noodles are also known as Singapore Mei Fun noodles.
Since we are making a vegan version of Singapore noodles, we’re skipping out on the egg and using tofu instead of meat.
Why you’ll love this recipe
- Need dinner in less than 30 minutes? This is the recipe for you! These noodles stir-fry up super quickly and can be made entirely in one pan.
- The curry powder mixed in the sauce gives these noodles a different taste than you’re an average stir-fry, for something a little more exciting and delicious!
- These noodles are super versatile and can pretty much be made with any type of veggies or protein you love added in.
How to make Singapore noodles
Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small dish. Set aside.
Cook the shallots and garlic in a pan until translucent.
Add the tofu and cook until it’s crispy on all sides.
Next, add the veggies and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add the cooked rice noodles and sauce and mix it all up!
Top it off with some sliced green onions and sesame seeds if you like.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Singapore noodles are made with rice vermicelli which can be found in most grocery stores. You want to look for a pack of vermicelli where the noodles aren’t too tightly packed together. This will make it easy to prevent your noodles from clumping together when cooking.
- You can also buy a slightly thicker rice vermicelli noodle for this recipe like I’ve done, which is easier to stir-fry and handle while cooking.
- Press the tofu between paper towels before cooking to get all the moisture out. This will result in crispier tofu.
- For best results, use a wok if you have one. Otherwise, a non-stick pan will work well.
- You can add in any veggies you love to this recipe like bok choy, broccoli or edamame.
- Use your taste! Depending on exactly how much noodles you use, or the brand of sauces you use, you may need a little more or less sauce in the recipe. Taste the noodles before serving and adjust accordingly. Sometimes an extra dash of soy sauce does the trick!
