  4. Heat remaining oil in same frying pan. Add garlic and broccolini. Stir-fry over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add capsicum and snow peas. Stir-fry a further 2 minutes or until vegetables are just tender.
  5. Add noodles. Stir-fry until hot.
  6. Return tofu to wok with combined sauces. Stir until noodles are evenly coated with sauce mixture.
  7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve straightaway.
