Mei's homemade Satay Sauce with Lemongrass Satay Tofu Noodle Soup

This is one of my quick and easy noodle soup recipes. It packs lots of flavour and warming goodness with minimal time and effort. Easy ingredients that you might already have in your cupboard, fridge and freezer. I use Satay Sauce for the soup base plus a pinch of stock cube to intensify the flavour.


(Serves 1)


  • 1 portion of rice noodles (vermicelli)
  • 1 banana shallot or sliced half of a small brown onion
  • Handful of bean sprouts
  • 6 tofu puffs (sliced)
  • 2 tbsp of Mei’s Satay Sauce with lemongrass
  • Chopped coriander, chillies and peanuts to garnish
  • 2 tbsp of Mei’s Satay Sauce with lemongrass
  • Quarter of a vegetarian stock cube + 500ml water

Alternatively, replace 200ml of water with 200ml of tin coconut milk for a rich creamy soup


  • Cook rice noodles according to the packet instruction.
  • In a sauce pan over medium-low heat, add a drizzle of cooking oil, 2 tbsp of Mei’s Satay Sauce with Lemongrass and chopped shallot. Fry for 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Add 500ml of hot water into the pan, a quarter of stock cube then bring it to boil.
  • Put vegetable and tofu puffs into the soup and noodles and cook for a minute.
  • Turn off the heat, season to taste.
  • Serve in a bowl and garnish .
You can use this recipe to make Dan Dan noodles soup by using Mei’s Dan Dan Chilli Sauce instead. Note: Omit coconut cream.
