These Thai Basil Noodles are perfect if you're craving some bold flavor for dinner. The recipe is easy to make and ready in about 30 minutes.
Heat 1 TB oil in a non-stick pan and add the tofu. Cook for a few minutes on each side until browned. Remove from pan and set aside.**
Meanwhile, heat a large pot of water for rice noodles. When water is boiling, turn off heat and add rice noodles for about 4 minutes or until al dente. You don't want them too soft because they will cook more later on.***
*If you can't Thai basil, you can always substitute regular sweet basil, but it will be a little less "spicy".
**If you're using pre-cooked tofu, just heat it in the pan with the olive oil.
***You can also use any type of noodle if you're not using rice noodles and cook to package directions.
If you have some extra time before dinner and would like to make the tofu even tastier, you can double the sauce and use half to marinate the tofu for up to an hour before cooking.
