Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil. Quarter each piece of Japanese tofu. Cut the broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. Thinly slice the red onion. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Thinly slice the long red chilli (if using). Finely grate the ginger and garlic.
Add the udon noodles (see ingredients list) to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until just tender, 6 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook until just tender, 3 minutes. Drain the noodles and broccoli and refresh under cold water.
While the noodles are cooking, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Toast the sesame seeds, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the tofu and cook, tossing, until heated through and lightly golden, 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
