1 Cook noodles following packet directions until al dente. Once cooked, drain and roughly cut in smaller lengths for easier handling. Stir kecap manis and soy sauce through noodles.
2 Heat oil in a wok or a large frying pan. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Add tofu, carrots and spring onions. Cook for 2 minutes then sprinkle with pepper. Add cabbage and cook for 2 more minutes.
3 Add noodles and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with crushed cashews (if using). Garnish with fresh coriander.
Make it gluten free: Use rice noodles, and replace soy sauce and kecap manis with a gluten-free tamari sauce. And make sure the tofu is gluten free, too.
