Prep Your Ingredients

Before we start cooking, let’s get the ingredients ready. Slice the mushrooms, onion, cabbage, and bok choy. Mince the garlic. Rinse and drain the bean sprouts. Drain and set aside the firm tofu.

Cook the Noodles

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the wonton noodles, following instructions on the package. Once done, rinse under cold water to stop cooking process.

Prepare The Vegan Wontons

Cook the dry wontons noodles following package instructions until cooked but still firm. Rinse with cold water, drain well, then pan fry using 1-2 tsp of vegetable oil until crispy.

In a small bowl mix together 2 Tbsp of water and 1 1/2 Tbsp of cornstarch in order to make a slurry.

Lay out your flat egg wonton noodles or your store-bought vegan wonton wrappers onto your work surface. Add about 1 heaping teaspoon of filling to each wrapper.

Use your finger dipped in some slurry to lightly moisten two adjacent sides of each wrapper (this will help them stick together).

Fold all four corners up and over forming a little pyramid with an exposed top.

Press these edges together tightly so you have a nice seal. Repeat until all your filling is used (you should have between 40 to 50 wrappers from one batch of this recipe for vegan wonton filling.).

Carefully drop each one into boiling salted water for approximately 5-7 minutes or until fully cooked through.

Drain, remove any excess moisture and set aside in a serving bowl

Note: If you don’t want to make vegan wonton from scratch, you can substitute it with roasted peanuts, sesame seeds, or crispy tofu.

Cook The Vegetables

Heat up a skillet or wok over medium heat, add 2 tbsp sesame oil and swirl around before adding minced garlic. Stir until fragrant before adding sliced onion, bok choy, mushroom stems etc

Stir fry for a couple of minutes before adding cabbage and bean sprouts

Continue stir frying veggies until just tender and slightly charred
Remove from heat

Make the Sauce

Mix all sauce ingredients – soy sauce, oyster sauce, 1-2 tsp of red pepper flakes (optional), 2 teaspoons of mushroom sauce (optional) together in a small bowl and set aside.

Substitutions and Variations

Many things can be substituted or varied in this Vegan Wonton Noodle Stir-Fry recipe, but keep in mind the original taste of the dish. If you want to add extra crunchiness, try using fried noodles or crispy noodles instead of wonton noodles.

For this recipe, firm tofu is recommended, but you can also use scrambled eggs or vegetarian wontons as a protein source. If you don’t like bok choy, you can swap it for other greens such as kale, spinach, or broccoli. Additionally, shredded carrots and bell peppers would add some color and extra flavors to the dish.

You can also play with the sauce by adding different amounts of soy sauce, oyster sauce or red pepper flakes to create different level of flavor and spiciness. Alternatively, you could replace oyster sauce with mushroom sauce or hoisin sauce for a vegan-friendly version.

If you’re looking for a healthier version, swap out the wonton noodles for flat egg noodles, rice noodles or even zucchini noodles for a low-carb option. And if you want to turn this stir-fry into a soup similar to Wonton Noodle Soup that one would snarf down while wandering around Hong Kong at 4 am, keep the broth separate and use vegetable broth instead of chicken.

Remember to experiment and enjoy the creation that suits your taste buds!

As someone who has a passion for cooking, I understand the importance of saving time in the kitchen. Luckily, this vegan wonton noodle stir-fry recipe can easily be made ahead of time without losing its delicious flavor. Simply cook the noodles and veggies as directed in the recipe, but stop before adding the sauce. Once done, allow them to cool completely, then store them in separate containers in the fridge for up to three days.

To reheat, toss everything together in a pan on medium heat and add the sauce slowly. If needed, sprinkle a couple of teaspoons of water to loosen up the mixture. Heat until everything is sizzling hot and ready to eat. Be sure not to overheat or else it will make the dish too soft.

If you have leftovers after reheating and eating it again, don’t worry- this dish stores well in the refrigerator! Just keep it tightly covered (use wrap or plastic bags) and it will remain fresh n’ tasty for up to 4 days. Make this dish your go-to-meal prep dish when you want to save some time or have a delicious meal waiting for you in the fridge.

Tips for Perfect Results

To make sure that your Wonton Noodle Vegan Stir-Fry comes out perfect every time, here are some helpful tips to follow.

First and foremost, be sure to use firm tofu for this dish. Firm tofu is dense and holds its shape well during cooking. Soft or silken tofu will fall apart quickly and create a mushy texture in your stir-fry.

Another important tip is to prep all of your ingredients before you start cooking. This recipe involves a lot of chopping and slicing, so it’s best to have everything ready to go before you begin stir-frying.

Additionally, make sure to cook your Wonton Noodle Vegan Stir-Fry on high heat. Stir-frying is a quick cooking method that requires high heat to sear the ingredients properly. If the heat is too low, the dish will end up being watery and without any crispy texture.

When cooking the wonton noodles, be sure to follow the package instructions carefully. Overcooking the noodles will cause them to become mushy, while undercooking them will leave them tough and chewy.

It’s also crucial to not over-crowd your pan when stir-frying. Adding too many ingredients at once will cause the temperature in the pan to decrease, resulting in a steaming rather than a stir-fried effect.

Finally, don’t be afraid to adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences. Add more soy sauce or red pepper flakes if you like a spicier sauce or reduce the amount of oyster sauce for a less sweet flavor.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to cook up a delicious batch of Wonton Noodle Vegan Stir-Fry that’s packed with flavors and textures in no time.
