These bowls of noodles, tofu, and sweet-savory sauce are ready in just 25 minutes. For speedier results, start with leftover cooked noodles. Toss in shredded carrots or chopped bell peppers for added texture and colour. If tofu isn't your thing, this dish is also delicious with leftover cooked pork, beef or shrimp for an easy variation.
