- 1 firm tofu
First drain as much water from the tofu as possible and pat it dry with kitchen roll. Cut the block into equally-sized ‘fillets’. You should get 4 from 1 block.
- 100 g peanuts
Blitz the peanuts in a hand blender until they form a crumb-like consistency and set aside.
- 1 carrot
- 1 red onion
- 1 chili
- 150 g baby corns
- 150 g Mangetout
- 2 bok choy
Peel and finely chop the carrots into batons, finely slice the onion and chilli. Split the baby corn and mangetout lengthways. Cut the root from the bok choi and also slice lengthways. Run the bok choi under water to remove any dirt. Set them all aside.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C.
- 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 lime
- 1 pinch chili flakes
- ½ tsp garlic powder
Mix together the peanut butter, soy sauce, the juice and zest of the lime, chilli flakes and garlic powder until smooth and fully combined.
Dip the tofu fillets into the sauce then into the peanut crumb, making sure they’re all nicely coated on all sides.
- nonstick pan
Once you‘ve coated all the tofu, lightly colour the peanut crust by dry-frying them in a non-stick pan over a medium heat for around 2 minutes on each side.
- baking sheet
Once you have a nice colour on the peanut crust, place the tofu on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and put them into the oven for 15 minutes
When they’ve been in the oven for about 10 minutes, start the stir-fry.
Preheat your wok oven a medium heat with a little oil. When the oil is up to temperature, add the chopped vegetables, leaving the bok choi til last, and cook for 3-4 minutes.
- 340 g egg noodles
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp Sriracha
Add the cooked noodles, followed by the soy sauce and Srircha. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Make sure everything is coated in the sauce. Add a little more soy sauce or Srircha if needed.
To serve, slice the tofu fillets on an angle (if you want to look extra fancy) and serve them on top of the stir-fried vegetables and noodles.
Enjoy your meal!
