  1. Pour boiling water over the noodles and set aside to soften for 15 mins. Cut the tofu in half through the centre to make 2 thinner pieces, then in half the other way to make 4 rectangles, and in half on the diagonal to make 8 triangles. In a frying pan, mix the chilli sauce, 2 tbsp soy and 3 tbsp pineapple juice. Add the tofu and cook until the sauce is thick and sticky, turning the tofu halfway through cooking. Tip into a serving dish with any sauce and keep warm.

  2. Drain the noodles. Heat the oil in the pan, add the peppers and the white parts of the spring onions and and fry for 8-10 mins until the peppers have defrosted and softened. Add the pineapple, noodles and remaining soy sauce, then toss together and heat through. Serve with the tofu, scattered with the green parts of the spring onions.

Cassies recipes are so simple and so good: This is the first time Tofu ever tasted so good in my kitchen. Like below I browned off the Tofu first and used fresh peppers

This was lovely! The only thing I’d do next time is make the tofu slices smaller and fried them off before adding to the sauce. Otherwise, great !

Followed this recipe to the letter and used fresh mixed peppers instead of frozen. Turned out absolutely lovely though the sauce (which is fab with the tofu) was a little lacking ... I think it reduced off way too hard while frying the tofu. Drizzled a little bit of sweet chilli sauce and soy over the noodles when served and it came out fantastic and all the flavours were very well balanced! Will definitely be making again.
