2. Ingredients for Dragon Noodles with Crispy Tofu

  • 16 oz. extra-firm tofu
  • 2 bunches green onions
  • 1/4 cup sriracha hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil (or extra-virgin olive oil)
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 16 oz. rice noodles (look for flat noodles about 1/4 inch wide, sometimes sold as pad Thai noodles)
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves

3. Directions:

3.1 Stove

Fill a Dutch oven with water and bring to a boil. If the water boils before you’re ready to cook the noodles, reduce it to a simmer and cover.

3.2 Prep

Unwrap the tofu, drain, and wrap in a kitchen towel. Set tofu bundle between two plates and put a can of tomatoes on top. Let stand for 5 minutes, then unwrap.

Cut tofu into 1/2 inch cubes and set aside. Cut the green onions into 1 inch pieces and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the sriracha, tamari, agave, and oil. Set aside.

3.3 Stove

Heat half of the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add half of the tofu and cook until golden brown, turning once, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer tofu to a plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and tofu.

Reduce heat to medium-high and add green onions to skillet. Saute until slightly softened, about 1 minute. Add sriracha mixture and bring to a simmer while stirring. Simmer for 1 minute to blend flavors. Remove from heat and set aside.

Add the rice noodles to boiling water and cook as directed on package. Drain and rinse.

Add noodles to skillet and toss gently to coat.

3.4 Serve

Cut the lime into wedges. Transfer noodles to bowls and top with crispy tofu, cilantro, and lime.
