Instructions

  1. Pat the tofu dry with kitchen paper. Cut each piece into 8 pieces. Place in a single layer on kitchen paper. Cover the tofu pieces with more kitchen paper, pressing down gently. Set aside for 5 minutes to stand.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the noodles following packet instructions or until just tender. Drain. Rinse under cold water. Drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the wombok, carrot, capsicum, shallot and sprouts and toss to combine. Whisk the vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger in a small bowl until well combined.
  3. Pound the salt and chilli flakes in a mortar with a pestle until finely ground. Combine the salt mixture in a large bowl with the flour. Add the tofu and toss to coat in mixture. Shake off excess salt mixture.
  4. Heat a wok over high heat. Add the peanut oil and heat for 10 seconds. Gently stir-fry the tofu pieces, in batches, for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  5. Add the dressing to the noodle salad and gently toss to combine. Serve the salad with the tofu.
