Cooking Instructions

  1. Start by preparing the tofu. Cut the pressed tofu into cubes or strips, whichever you prefer. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the tofu and cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping occasionally, until golden and crispy. Remove from heat and set aside.

  2. Cook the rice noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet used for the tofu, heat the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the red bell pepper, carrot, and cabbage. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables are slightly tender.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, peanut butter, honey (or maple syrup), sriracha sauce, and minced garlic. Pour the sauce over the cooked vegetables in the skillet. Stir well to combine and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

  5. Add the cooked rice noodles to the skillet and toss everything together until well coated with the sauce.

  6. Divide the tofu noodle mixture into serving bowls. Garnish with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro.
