    What to do

  • 1. Chop tofu into 1 ½ cm (¼ in) cubes.

  • 2. Place the marinade ingredients in a bowl, add the tofu and mix together until the tofu is coated. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

  • 3. Shred the cabbage and thinly slice the capsicums.

  • 4. Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook the noodles until tender. Drain the noodles, then rinse under cold water. Set aside.

  • 5. Drain the marinade from the tofu but reserve the marinade for use later.

  • 6. Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the tofu and cook for about 4–6 minutes until browned and heated through. Remove from the heat.

  • 7. Place the noodles, tofu and all the veggies and herbs on a large serving plate. Cover with the reserved marinade and toss to coat.

  • 8. Top with peanuts. Serve while the tofu is still warm.
