Tofu and noodle soup (low FODMAP, gluten free, vegan)

Tofu and noodle soup (FODMAP friendly)

Rice noodle soup with tofu, radish, carrot, spinach, chilli, coriander, ginger, soy and sesame oil.


(Serves 1-2 as a FODMAP recipe)

  • 50g (gluten free) rice noodle, dry
  • 2 soft plain tofu cubes, approx. 80g each, cut into smaller cubes
  • 50g carrot, julienne
  • 40g radish, julienne (I used Chinese radish, you may use normal radish)
  • some green leaf vegetables – for example, 20g baby spinach, or  30g bok choy (chopped), or 30g choy sum (chopped)
  • 3g ginger, sliced
  • 1 chili, sliced
  • 3g coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp soy sauce (use gluten free soy sauce for a gluten free option)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • cooking oil  (I used olive oil)
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • Cook rice noodles according to instruction on the package; once cooked, place noodles in a sieve and run under cold water briefly; drain off excess liquid; add a dash of cooking oil, mix well so the noodles won’t stick together.
  • Bring some cooking oil to medium heat in a non stick frying pan, add ginger & tofu cubes; pan fry the tofu until slightly brown; add radish, carrot, soy sauce, sesame oil and 2-3 cup of water, bring to boil; season with salt and pepper; simmer for 3-5 minutes or until the radish is just tender; add green leaf vegetables, cook for 1-2 minutes; turn off heat, add noodles.
  • Serve warm, garnish with chili and coriander.




    • Thank you so much for your kind words Archana – it is so nice to know that you like my blog and this dish. I checked out your blog too, it looks absolutely fantastic! I was talking to a colleague with an India background earlier this week about an easy Indian finger food that I could make for the school fete. He recommended me to buy frozen packaged samosa. hahaha.. I really like your cilantro croquette recipe. Next time I am at the Indian store I will get some gram flour and give it a try. Have a lovely day.
