350g block tofu, pressed and cut into large pieces
2 tsp garam masala spice
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp maple syrup
1 large bunch (4-6 small bunches) pak choy, bok choi or other Asian vegetables, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
200g pack green tea soba noodles, or regular soba noodles

1. Place the pressed and chopped tofu in a large shallow dish. Combine the garam masala, soy sauce, lemon juice and maple syrup, then pour over the tofu and allow to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
2. When the tofu is ready, heat a non-stick pan over high heat and add the tofu pieces, drizzling with extra marinade. Reserve any spare marinade. Stir fry the tofu for several minutes on each side, until golden.
3. Reduce the heat to low and add the vegetables to the tofu. Stir fry for a further 5-10 minutes over low heat.
4. Meanwhile, add the noodles to a saucepan of boiling water and simmer, covered, for 6 minutes.
5. Combine, drizzle with any remaining marinade, and serve.
