Instructions

  • To press the tofu, remove from package and drain.

  • Now add 1-2 tbsp oil to the skillet.
  • Add the drained tofu and cook until browned on both sides, flipping halfway through.
  • Transfer to cutting board to cool.
  • Add another swirl of oil and add the edamame, carrots, garlic, and green onions to the skillet and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add peanut sauce {start with 1/2 cup and add more if needed} and rice noodles and stir to combine and heat through.
