What to eat tonight: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Singapore noodles


by Meg Walker

Gwyneth Paltrow's Singapore rice noodles are super-simple and full of flavour – the perfect weeknight supper.

These pan-fried noodles are gluten-free, full of veggies, and kid-approved (my kids inhale this). The prep does take some time, but once you’re cooking, the dish comes together quickly, so be ready with all the ingredients.

Add chicken, shrimp, or beef for a little extra protein, and if you don’t have a wok or a really big nonstick pan, use two smaller pans – these noodles don’t like to be crowded. Pan-frying noodles is not an exact science, so trust your instincts and add a couple more glugs of oil if things are looking dry or starting to stick.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Singapore Rice Noodles
Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 100g thin rice noodles
  • 4 tbsp peanut oil
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 45g finely chopped broccoli
  • 75g chopped green beans (?-inch pieces)
  • 75g fresh or frozen peas
  • 200g firm tofu, cut into ?-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp madras curry powder, or more to taste
  • 1 large egg
  • 60ml tamari
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 50g chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt, if desired


Method

Soak the rice noodles in hot water for 10 minutes or according to the package instructions.

Meanwhile, heat a wok or large nonstick saut? pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp each of the peanut and sesame oils. When the oils are hot but not smoking, add the onion and cook, untouched, for 1 minute to sear. Reduce the heat to medium and saut?, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes more. Transfer the onion to a bowl.

Add the broccoli, green beans, peas, tofu, and another tbsp of peanut oil to the pan. Saut? over high heat until the veggies are just cooked through and the tofu is beginning to brown (about 2 minutes); transfer the veggies and tofu to the bowl with the onion.

Add 1 tbsp of the peanut oil, the remaining 1 tbsp of sesame oil, the soaked and drained noodles, curry powder, and 2 tbsp water to the pan and stir to combine. Make a hole in the middle of the noodles, add the remaining 1 tbsp peanut oil, and crack in the egg. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon and let scramble until almost cooked through, then mix in with the noodles.

Add the tamari, scallions, and cilantro and stir everything to combine. Taste for seasoning, add salt if necessary, and serve.
