How to Make it

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Place diced tofu in a bowl. Cover with soy sauce and maple syrup and set to one side for 5 minutes.
  • Mix together all sauce ingredients in a blender (or in a jug using a hand blender). Season with a little more soy sauce, if desired. (This can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to three days.)
  • Place the marinated tofu onto a baking paper-lined oven tray and bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Put noodles on to cook, according to packet instructions; most take 5 - 10 minutes to cook, so put them on nearer the end of the tofu cooking time.
  • Drain noodles, add sauce to the pot, and toss through the sauce. Allow to simmer for a few minutes to heat through over a low heat.
  • Serve noodles topped with roasted tofu, garnished peanuts, and some fresh basil or coriander if desiring a pop of green freshness and fragrance!
