  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 395 g tofu drained, patted dry, then slice into four sheets
  • 2 tbsp blanched almonds
  • 300 g thin rice noodles cooked
  • 120 g sweet chilli stir fry sauce
  • 30 g cucumber cut into slivers


  • Place the layers of tofu in a bowl with the soy sauce and leave to soak for 10 minutes. This helps it to absorb flavour and firm up. Pat dry again.
  • Transfer to a very hot griddle pan (or press grill) and cook for 5 minutes until charred a little on both sides. Transfer to a board to rest.
  • Toast the almonds in a dry pan over a medium heat for 1 minute, shaking constantly until they just begin to colour
  • Add the sauce and noodles and stir for 2-3 minutes until heated through, then transfer to a large bowl.
  • Slice the tofu into strips against the griddle marks and then pile on top of the noodles.
  • Finish with a scattering of sliced cucumber.
