  • 1 tablespoon vegetarian oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon organic sugar
  • 1 pound extra firm tofu small cubes
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil divided
  • 1/2 ounce dried shiitake mushrooms rehydrated and sliced
  • 2 thin carrots thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions whites julienned, greens diagonally sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger minced
  • 9 ounces long life noodles or other thin wheat noodles


  • Put on a pot of water for the noodles. Prepare a wide bowl lined with triple layers of paper towels for the tofu.
    In a cup, stir the oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar.
    Heat a wok over high heat and drizzle in 2 tbs of the oil. When hot, add the tofu and start stirring. Cook until golden brown, then transfer to the paper lined bowl. Set aside.
  • Cook the noodles-the thin noodles took only 2 minutes. Wipe out the wok and put back on the heat. Drizzle in the last tablespoon of oil. Add the carrots and white parts of the scallions, and stir. When softened, add the garlic and ginger and stir.
  • Add the noodles, shiitake mushrooms and the oyster sauce mixture, stirring and tossing to coat. When heated through, add the tofu and the green parts of the scallions. Serve immediately.
