Ingredients

8 ounces thin rice noodles

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 14-ounce package firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Kosher salt

4 scallions, cut into 2-inch pieces

2 stalks celery, thinly sliced

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons Madras curry powder

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

Juice of 1/2 lime, plus wedges for serving

1 cup mung bean sprouts

Directions

  1. Put the noodles in a large bowl, cover with hot water and soak until just softened, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the tofu in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, until golden on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Toss gently with a spatula and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden all over, about 4 more minutes; season with salt. Add 1 more tablespoon vegetable oil, the scallions, celery and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon curry powder and season with salt; stir until the vegetables are coated and the curry powder is lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Transfer the tofu and vegetables to a bowl.
  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon curry powder to the skillet. Add the drained noodles and cook, tossing, until they turn yellow, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tofu mixture, soy sauce and chicken broth and cook, tossing, until most of the liquid evaporates, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and season with salt. Top each serving with the bean sprouts and serve with lime wedges.
