  • 2 tsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 2cm piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped or grated
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 85g vermicelli rice noodles
  • 2 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 spring onion, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2cm piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped

  • 100g pak choi (or spinach)
  • 1 large red pepper, sliced
  • 1 tsp tamari or soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped coriander


  1. Make the marinade by mixing together all the ingredients. Drain the tofu by placing on several sheets of kitchen paper on a plate, with several more on top, and a heavy weight (such as a pan) on top of that. Leave for at least 15 mins. Cut the tofu into cubes and put in? a small bowl with the marinade. Cover and leave for 30 mins-1 hr.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following pack instructions, then drain and sit them in a bowl of cold water.?

  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan. Add the tofu pieces and fry until hot and crispy. Just before you remove the tofu from the pan, add any remaining marinade and let it sizzle for 10 secs. Place the tofu on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

  4. In a frying pan or wok, heat the rapeseed and sesame oils over a high heat. Add the spring onion, garlic, chilli and ginger, and stir constantly for about 1 min. Add the sugar snap peas, pak choi and pepper, and stir for another 1-2 mins, then add the cooked noodles. Toss well, then add the soy sauce and lime juice, and mix until well combined and the pan is sizzling.?

  5. Remove from the heat and divide between 2 bowls. Top each with tofu cubes and drizzle over any juices. Sprinkle with coriander and serve.?
