Who can say no to Thai -style noodles, stir-fried with tofu and bean sprouts, laced with a tinge of ginger and garlic?

Peanuts and bean sprouts impart an exciting crunchy texture to this tangy, easy noodle preparation. Tofu, for its part, boosts the protein and iron content of this dish.

I have used rice noodles but added other fibre-rich veggies, bean sprouts etc to make this recipe diabetic -friendly.
