    1- 350 g  block of extra firm tofu, drained, pressed and cut into 1 1/4 inch (3 cm) cubes (1) 


    1/4 cup canola oil (60 mL)

    2 Tbsp soy sauce (30 mL)

    2 Tbsp rice vinegar (30 mL)

    2 tsp sesame oil (10 mL)

    1 Tbsp liquid honey (15 mL)

    Pasta and Vegetables:

    2 green onions, thinly sliced (2)

    1 tsp sesame seeds (5 mL)

  • Directions

    Crispy Tofu:

    1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Transfer tofu into a large zipper bag. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, canola oil and corn starch. If needed, add a little more soy sauce, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) at a time, to make a thick slurry. Pour into freezer bag and gently jostle bag gently to evenly coat tofu. Transfer tofu onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through until golden brown. Cool slightly.


    1. Meanwhile, in a small bowl add all ingredients for dressing and whisk to combine.

    Pasta and Vegetables:

    1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Rinse noodles with cold water and strain thoroughly. Toss cooled noodles with half the dressing. Arrange noodles on the bottom of a large serving platter or individual bowls. Top with bell pepper, peas and crispy tofu. Sprinkle with green onion, sesame seeds, and drizzle platter with remaining dressing.

    TIP: Try meal prepping for the week ahead with this meal. Package the crispy tofu noodle bowl into 4 separate food storage containers to enjoy for a quick grab-and-go lunch.
