  • 1 12- ounce package tofu
  • 2 teaspoons light sesame oil divided
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil divided
  • 8 ounces rice noodles
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup bell pepper chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon tamari
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • Sesame seeds to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Cut Nasoya tofu into 1/2 inch cubes, and place them in a bowl with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and lime juice.  Mix and marinate for 10 minutes.  Add the corn starch and toss to coat the tofu.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the sunflower oil on top of the parchment paper lined sheet pan, and add tofu in a single layer on the sheet pan, and bake for 40 minutes, flipping halfway during cooking time.
  • While the tofu is baking, boil a large pot of water and cook rice noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set noodles aside in a colander to rest. In the same pot you cooked the noodles in, add the remaining tablespoon of sunflower oil and lightly sauté the garlic for 3 or 4 minutes over low heat.  Add the chili sauce and tamari, and bell pepper and continue cooking for 4 minutes.  Add the noodles back to the pot with the vegetables and stir together to combine.
  • Dish up noodles in a bowl, and top with a heaping scoop of crispy baked tofu. Top with sesame seeds an green onions for garnish.
