  • Oil - 2 Tbsp
  • Firm tofu, cut into cubes - 300 g
  • Laksa paste - 3 Tbsp
  • Coconut milk - 400 ml
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Vermicelli rice noodles - 100 g
  • Broccoli, cut into florets - 1


  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Fry the tofu, turning so all sides are golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  2. Add the laksa paste to the pan and stir for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add the coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water.

  3. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli back in for the last 2 minutes.

  4. While the laksa is simmering, place the vermicelli noodles in a large heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until the noodles are soft. Drain and use a fork to separate noodles if needed.

  5. Add tofu and vermicelli noodles to the pan and gently combine all ingredients.

Tip: Use vegetable or chicken stock in place of the 1/2 cup of water if you have it available. Fresh herbs such as coriander or basil, or mung beans, are great toppings to add before serving.
