A stir-fry is a simple and versatile dish that can be made with any number of veggies. Prep everything in advance—once you start, it comes together quickly.
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 green onions , finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves , crushed
- 1 tbsp brown sugar or honey
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp rice or black vinegar
- 454 g medium or medium-firm tofu
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1 tbsp canola oil
- 454 g thick or thin fresh wheat noodles
- 2 to 4 cups assorted julienned or chopped vegetables , such as carrots, bell peppers, snap peas, broccolini, mushrooms, cabbage and baby bok choy
- Chili oil or sriracha , for serving (optional)
- Sauce: Stir soy with oyster sauce, green onions, garlic, sugar, sesame oil and vinegar in a small bowl.
- Pat tofu dry with paper towels, then cut into bite-sized cubes. Toss with cornstarch in a medium bowl.
- Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then tofu. Cook, turning cubes occasionally, until crispy and golden-brown, 5 to 7 min. Transfer to a plate.
- Cook noodles following package directions.
- Meanwhile, return pan to stovetop and set over medium-high. Add vegetables. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables are just tender. Drain noodles, then add to pan along with sauce.

Sprinkle with more green onions, and serve with chili oil or sriracha, if desired.
