This sweet and spicy noodle dish is a healthy (VEGAN) take on a traditional Thai noodle dish. Takes little time and tastes like it took forever.
Always a slurping good time when noodles are involved. I love when meals can taste off the charts and take no time.
I like to roast my tofu first and while that’s cooking get everything else on the ready. Ready? Let’s doooo…
- Preheat oven to 400. Cut tofu in half and cover with t-towel. Place a heavy pan or pot on top to press out any excess liquid. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, turn and bake again for 10 more. Set aside.
- In a small bowl place all ingredients for sauce and whisk vigorously to bring together. Once tofu is cooked place into the sauce and coat evenly.
- Boil water and cook noodles according to package. Heat oil in pan, add chili flakes, and garlic. Add peppers and sauté for up to a minute. Add in tofu and sauce. Rinse noodles in cold water and add to pan. Toss to combine. Add spinach, mint, peanuts and place in bowls. Sprinkle with extra chili flakes and sesame seeds.
