Preparation
STEP 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water to prevent sticking. Set aside.

Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add oil to coat bottom. Add tea leaves, ginger and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

STEP 3

Add tofu and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.

STEP 4

Add red pepper and broccolini and cook until bright and softened, about 1-2 minutes.

STEP 5

Stir in noodles, soy sauce and vinegar. Mix gently until noodles are heated through. Add green onions and sesame oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or cold, sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds for garnish.
