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


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