Soak cooked noodles in a bowl of hot water for approximately two minutes so they separate. Mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil and water in a bowl.

Heat a wok over a high heat, add the oil and stir-fry the carrot and broccoli for 2 minutes. They should be slightly browned but still crisp. Add the tofu and stir-fry for 4 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for a minute. By this time, the carrot and broccoli should be tender but still hold their shape.

Add the noodles and sauce and mix together until hot. Serve immediately.
