Don't be tempted to make the noodles in advance. If they sit around too long they will begin to stick to each other.

Serves: 3 to 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 (8-ounce) package flat rice stick noodles
  • ¼ cup low-sodium teriyaki sauce (gluten-free, if needed)
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • ¼ teaspoon sambal oelek (hot chili sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 4 cups snow peas, trimmed
  • 8 ounces seasoned baked tofu, drained and cut into ¾-inch cubes
  • ⅓ cup chopped cilantro
  • ⅓ cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • Lime wedges, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Bring 6 cups of water to boil in a large pot. Add the noodles, stir to separate and then cover and remove the pot from the heat. Let stand 6 minutes, or until soft. Drain the noodles.
  2. While the noodles are softening, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, peanut butter, hot water, and chili sauce in a small bowl.
  3. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and stir fry for 30 seconds. Then add the snow peas and stir fry for 3 minutes. Add the tofu and stir fry 1 minute. Add the teriyaki sauce mixture and cook for 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Finally, add the noodles to the pan and gently toss with a fork for 2 to 3 minutes or until the noodles are coated with the sauce and heated through.
  4. Sprinkle each serving with cilantro and peanuts, and serve with lime wedges.
