  6. *The original recipe has the baked tofu added here. (Because I used my baked tofu recipe, the tofu was already hot, so I waited because I did not want the cubes to loose their shape).
  7. If using store bough baked tofu, add it here and stir-fry another minute before adding sauce.
  8. Add tamari mixture and cook 2 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
  9. *I added my tofu AFTER the sauce thickened, and tossed gently to coat evenly.
  10. Add cooked noodles, and toss to coat with snow peas and sauce.
  11. Sprinkle with cilantro and chopped peanuts.
  12. Serve with lime wedges.

This was just the type of dish I was looking for. I think it could use a little tinkering to get to perfection - I did add a splash of fish sauce (per the last review suggestion) and some lime juice to bump it up. Makes for a great cold pasta dish, good as a side, lunch, or anytime snack. Thanks!

Delicious light lunch. Even the kids enjoyed it. Think I'd add a bit of Oyster or Fish sauce next time to just add a bit of depth. Great quick lunch though. Thanks!
