Californian-Style Tofu & Hemp Noodles

Hemp noodles and pan-fried tofu form the delicious vegan bed of this Oriental dish.  We drizzle them with a rich sweet miso paste dressing, fresh lime juice and maple syrup and add accents of fresh mint.

Add our vegan & organic carrot tagliatelle for a touch of colour. Alternatively, try our hemp or spinach vegan tagliatelle.

The Method

  • Drain the tofu and pat fry with paper towel. Cut into 2cm pieces.
  • Peel the carrot and cut into matchsticks. Finely chop the chilli. Remove the ends of courgette, but leave the skin on. Prepare courgette ribbons using a peeler and slice the courgettes into long, thin strips.
  • Heat a frying pan with 1 tbsp of sesame oil on a medium heat and fry the tofu for 5 minutes. Add the tamari to the pan and fry for a further 2 minutes, then add the carrot and fry for another 3 minutes until the carrot has softened slightly.
  • Boil a kettle. Pour boiling water into a large saucepan until 3/4 full, bring to the boil and plunge the tagliatelle into the pan. Remove from the heat and leave to cook for 4 minutes, then drain and rinse. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, to make the sauce; mix the sweet miso paste with the juice from the lime and the maple syrup.
  • In a bowl, mix the noodles with the tofu, carrot, courgette and chopped chilli. Roughly tear the mint leaves and add to the bowl together with the miso sauce, stir to combine.
  • Serve on warm plates.
