  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsps tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1-2 tbsps coconut sugar to taste
  • 1 large lime juiced
  • 6 ounces thin rice noodles
  • 2 tbsps toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 white or yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 3/4 thinly sliced
  • 12 whole snow peas
  • 1 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce) for the noodles
  • 4 tsps curry powder
  • 8 ounces extra-firm tofu pressed dry and cubed (for serving, optional)
  • Sriracha (or chili garlic sauce) for serving
  • 2 stalks green onions thinly sliced, for serving


  1. Add rice noodles to a large bowl and cover completely with boiling water. Let cook for 5-10 minutes (or according to package instructions), stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the meantime, make the sauce by adding minced garlic, tamari or soy sauce, coconut sugar, and lime juice to a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Then taste and adjust seasonings as needed. You’re going for a savory-tart sauce with a bit of sweetness (adjust to taste). Set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add half of the toasted sesame oil (1 Tbsp as original recipe is written; adjust if altering batch size), onion and red bell pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, or until onion is soft and translucent.
  4. Add snow peas, 1 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce, and 2 tsp curry powder, and stir (amounts as original recipe is written; adjust if altering batch size). Sauté for 2-3 minutes, then remove from pan and set aside.
  5. To the still-hot skillet, add remaining sesame oil (1 Tbsp as original recipe is written;adjust if altering batch size), cooked rice noodles, sauce, and remaining 2 tsp curry powder. Sauté for 1 minute, tossing frequently with tongs to disperse sauce and curry powder.
  6. Add back in the vegetables and toss to coat. Cook for 1-2 minutes more, then remove from heat.
  7. Serve with desired toppings. This dish benefits greatly from a little hot sauce, such as Sriracha!
