Servings 2 servings


  • 2 nests rice noodles cooked
  • 1/2 block extra-firm tofu cut into cubes
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 medium head broccoli cut into florets

Peanut Lime Sauce

  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp srirachia optional
  • 1/2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 3-4 tbsp hot water


  1. Bring water in a medium pot to boil and cook noodles according to package directions. While you're waiting for water to boil you can start frying your tofu cubes. In a medium frying pan, heat sesame oil over medium-high heat. Place tofu cubes in hot oil (they should sizzle) and fry for 2-3 minutes (until golden brown) before flipping the cubes and frying on the other side for another 2-3 minutes. Once the tofu is done, reduce heat and leave on pan until it's time to assemble your bowls. 

  2. Steam broccoli and make your sauce. Place broccoli in a microwave-safe container and pour about 2 centimetres of water into container. Place a damp paper towel over container and microwave for 3-4 minutes to steam broccoli. Then whisk together sauce ingredients until smooth, creamy, and thin enough to pour. You made need to add more hot water. 

  3. Assemble bowls with noodles, crispy tofu cubes and steamed broccoli/veggies. Drizzle with peanut sauce and enjoy!
