Nutritional values

Tofu is an important source of protein and therefore always a good idea, especially for vegetarians and especially for vegans. The crunchy vegetables bring vitamins and fibre into play; the noodles ensure good satiety. Especially for vegetarians and especially for vegans.

If you want, you can also use rice noodles instead of Mie noodles. This even saves a few more minutes, because they only have to be soaked for a short time.
