Generally Filipinos do not add salt or pepper to their dishes, as it is considered an insult to the cook — dishes should have the perfect balance of spices. But you can put soy sauce, salt and pepper on the table if anyone wants to add seasoning. This dish has a strong Chinese influence and is a complete meal in itself. You'll find the deep-fried tofu puffs in Asian food stores.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 bunch spring onions, chopped
1 large carrot, julienned or cut into strips the width of the egg noodles
1/2 cabbage, cut into strips
1/4 cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 large head broccoli, cut into small florets
1 cup vegetable stock
1/2 cup soy sauce
1kg egg noodles
1kg dried rice vermicelli noodles
500g bean sprouts

To garnish

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1.5kg deep-fried tofu puffs, cut into thin strips
12 eggs

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large wok over medium heat and sauté the garlic until just golden. Add the spring onions, vegetables, stock and soy sauce. Mix well and bring to the boil.
  2. Meanwhile, rinse the egg noodles in boiling water to remove the oily residue and soften them. Soften the vermicelli noodles separately in a colander by pouring boiling water over them. Allow all the noodles to drain, then add them to the pan.
  3. Cook the mixture for another 15–20 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft but not mushy, then add the bean sprouts.
  4. Meanwhile, make the garnish. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat, then fry the tofu strips to crisp them up. Remove the tofu from the pan and set aside. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then pour them into the frying pan. Cook until golden underneath, then turn and cook on the other side until set in the middle and golden. Tip the omelette onto a chopping board and slice it into thin strips.
  5. Serve hot with the egg strips on top of the noodles with the refried tofu.
