This is a very hot and spicy tofu recipe that I made up one night for a change. My husband loves it and he's the typical steak-and-potatoes kind of guy!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk soy sauce, garlic chile paste, garlic, cayenne pepper, and ginger together in a small bowl until chile paste is completely dissolved.

  • Place noodles in a large bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside until noodles are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse.

  • Heat oil in a large wok over medium heat. Cook and stir tofu cubes in hot oil until browned on all sides, 3 to 6 minutes. Stir green onion into tofu; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 of the soy sauce mixture over tofu mixture; bring to a simmer and cook until sauce reduces, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir snow peas, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper into tofu mixture; cook and stir until vegetables are heated through, about 5 minutes. Pour remaining soy sauce mixture over the top; cook and stir until liquid reduces and vegetables are tender yet still crisp to the bite, about 5 minutes. Add rice noodles to tofu mixture and toss to coat; cook until noodles are heated through and flavors combine, 2 to 5 minutes.
