Stir fry for 1 minute more then add the spring onion, chilli, ginger and garlic. Stir fry for 1 minute more then add the noodles, the remaining soy sauce and the juice of the remaining ½ lime.
  5. Stir the noodles and vegetables together for 2 minutes then divide between 2 shallow bowls. Top with the griddled tofu and sprinkle with coriander. Serve with lemon or lime wedges.
