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!

  • 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.

I would however make a few changes next time I make this.... somethings to consider when you make it. I will use 1/2-1 tsp of cayenne- 2 full tsp is FAR over powering even for my preference being for on the hot side. I would also add 1/4-1/2 cup of water during the cooking process.... I think it will help steam the veggies a bit (I like them a bit softer) and once it evaporates off will leave a nice consistency to the sauce. As it was I was afraid that the sauce was burning. I would also sprinkle dish with chopped peanuts and more onion for some crunch. Awesome recipe... will be using again. Carrots were awesome in this by the way...:) Read More

There was not enough liquid in this recipe so the spices burnt. Also we did not enjoy the flavor. Read More

This was amazing! My husband was unsure of tofu I think he had three servings. I made a few changes cut back the cayenne to 1/2 tsp and I did not have chili paste so I used chili sauce. After I made the sauce mixture I put the diced tofu in it marinate while I chopped up other veggies. This is a must make! Read More

Very spicy. Needs something to cool the pepper down. Next time may spend more time trying to sweetin it a bit. Read More

Fantastic! I used fresh cayenne peppers. I added some "spiralized" carrots squash and green zucchini. I used Sriracha and it really goes well in this dish. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

It is spicy!!!! Next time I'll adjust- I like spicy but it was actually too spicy for me. I also don't care for tofu so I omitted it. I will make this again only with less spice! Read More

This was quite spicy as written. My garlic chili sauce is potent so I cut that way back the second time I made this and I cut back on the cayenne. Read More
