Spicy Singapore Noodles with Crispy Tofu

Guess what? These Spicy Singapore noodles don’t actually hail from Singapore. Actually they are a popular takeout style stir-fry dish served in some Chinese restaurants. Authenticity of the name aside, they are utterly delicious and extremely easy to make at home!

Why these Spicy Singapore Noodles are so good

  • The foundation of these spicy Singapore noodles are thin, vermicelli style noodles. For this recipe I’m using Annie Chun’s Mai Fun Rice Noodles, which are the perfect consistency for this dish. They’re vegan and gluten free and made with the most simple ingredients: just rice flour and water!
  • The Mai Fun Noodles are perfect to soak up the spicy stir fry sauce, which contains good- for-you-ingredients like garlic and fresh ginger.
  • Fresh, colorful vegetables like bell pepper, snow peas and cabbage add lots of texture and healthy nutrients, and chili paste, curry powder and turmeric give the dish a punch of flavor and spice.
  • These Singapore noodles are topped with crispy, golden tofu, making this a wonderfully satisfying vegan dish.
