For the noodles:
  • Coconut oil
  • 200g extra firm tofu, in cubes
  • 1 tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • ½ small head broccoli, in florets
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled (about 400g total)
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • ½ - 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 sprigs basil, leaves roughly torn
For the pine nut parmesan:
  • 2 tbsp handful pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 ½ tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • Salt and black pepper

1. Prepare the vegetables. To prepare the sweet potato noodles, cut off both ends to create two flat ends. Use a spiraliser to make the noodles and put to one side.

2. Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large frying pan and fry the tofu cubes until golden brown, turning over to make sure all sides are crisp. Pour over 1 tbsp tamari soy sauce and toss to coat. Remove from the pan.

3. Return the frying pan to the heat with some coconut oil and add the broccoli and tomatoes for 5-7 minutes until they are cooked through.

4. Add in the sweet potato noodles, garlic, lemon zest and chilli flakes to the pan. Season with salt and cracked black pepper and stir well to evenly coat all the noodles in the oil. Cook for a couple of minutes and add 2 tbsp water and allow to steam cook with a lid on for 5 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, make the pine nut parmesan. Using a pestle and mortar, grind together the toasted pine nuts, nutritional yeast, garlic granules with some salt and black pepper until crumbly.

6. Check the noodles, you want some bite left in them. A couple of minutes before serving the noodles, add the tofu back to the pan and toss well.

7. To serve, divide the noodles between two plates, top with the torn basil and pine nut parmesan. Best eaten straight away.
