Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 125ml (½ cup) coconut milk
- 30ml (2 tbsp) almond or Macadamia Nut Butter
- 20ml (4 tsp) Sriracha sauce
- 15ml (1 tbsp) Mokhado Macadamia Oil
- 15ml (1 tbsp) miso paste
- 15ml (1 tbsp) soy sauce
- 15ml (1 tbsp) white wine vinegar
- 30ml (2 tbsp) fresh coriander, chopped
- 15ml (1 tbsp) Mokhado Macadamia Oil + extra
- 200g firm tofu, cubed
- 180g wild mushrooms
- salt and pepper
- 100g rice noodles, cooked
- 45ml (3 tbsp) salted peanuts, chopped
- 1 (25g) spring onion, chopped
- handful micro herbs, to serve (optional)
Combine the coconut milk, almond or Macadamia Nut butter, Sriracha sauce, Macadamia oil, miso, soy and vinegar in saucepan and cook, 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the coriander.
Heat the Macadamia oil in a pan over high heat. Add the tofu and fry for 1 minute on each side until golden and crisp. Drain on kitchen paper. Add more Macadamia oil to the hot pan and fry the mushrooms off until tender, 2-3 minutes. Season lightly.
Toss the cooked noodles through the warm sauce and spoon into the serving dish. Add the tofu and mushrooms and scatter the peanuts, spring onions and micro herbs, if using, on top.
TIP: If preferred, the tofu can be replaced with fried tempeh instead.
TIP: The sauce will thicken on standing. Simply re-heat it with a splash of hot water to thin it out again.
