Quick and easy Thai noodles make a tasty meal. You can easily change the ingredients to suit your own tastes. Different veggies can be added or substituted such as mushrooms, snow peas etc

- 2 tablespoons kikoman soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 cup diced extra firm tofu
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 sliced Thai chiles or thai chili paste (just use very little the first time and then you'll know how much to increase or decrease it by the)
- 1 1⁄2 cups sliced broccoli
- 1⁄2 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 1 cup bean sprouts
- 1 cup Thai basil (you can use regular basil leaves in its place if you can't find this ingredient but it will give it)

I'm afraid I'd have to resort to profanity to describe how much I enjoyed this dish. Fabulous! It was very easy to prepare. The only thing I did different was cooking about 5 minutes extra after adding the chili, broccoli, and onion (That is just a personal thing as I like broccoli very tender when cooked), and also doubling the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and brown sugar. Other than that I followed the directions to the letter and it came out absolutely fabulous. Thank you very much, I will be making this again and it will most likely be a larger batch. :)
This was really delicious. I doubles sauce, added a little fish sauce (1 tbsp), and substituted dried red pepper for the chiles. I know that's not authentic but it's all I had on hand, and it is DELICIOUS. The key to this is the basil, get Thai basil, and real chiles would make this even better.
Very good recipe, but definitely double the sauce - otherwise it is just too dry. Thai chili paste also works instead of fresh thai chilis if they are not readily available.
