Sticky tofu noodles! Indy's favourite dish 😉


  • 1 block of tofu
  • 1 tbsp coconut, sesame, or sunflower oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves


  • Optionally, press your block of tofu for 30+ minutes between a chopping board and some books (or a heavy casserole dish).
  • Cut the tofu into cubes.
  • Start to lightly fry the tofu in the oil, turning to brown and crisp all the sides taking care not to break any.
  • When pale brown, pour over your dressing of soy sauce, mirin, ginger, coriander, a generous grind of black pepper, and crushed garlic.
  • Continue to cook for a further three minutes whilst the sauce / dressing thickens and becomes nice and sticky.
  • Enjoy topped with sesame seeds and with stir fried egg noodles and vegetables.
