Satay tofu noodles with snow peas

A satisfying meal for two.

Allow time for pressing and marinating the tofu.

250g firm tofu
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp soy sauce
1-1/2 to 2 cups snow peas
1 bunch soba noodles

1. Press your tofu using your preferred method. (Mine is to cut into thick slices, layer between tea towels and chopping boards, and press for at least 20 minutes under my heaviest cookbooks and saucepan.)
2. While the tofu is pressing, combine the almond milk, peanut butter and soy sauce in a small blender or food processor, or if you prefer, a deep jug or bowl. Blend or whisk very well until smooth.
3. Cut the tofu into squares and place in a shallow dish. Cover with the satay sauce and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes.
4. When the tofu is ready, heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add the tofu squares, reserving any remaining marinade. Cook the tofu for several minutes on each side until golden.
5. Add the snow peas and remaining marinade to your pan and reduce heat to low. At the same time, add your soba noodles to a saucepan of boiling water and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and then add the noodles to the tofu mix.
6. Allow to cook over low heat for a further 5 or so minutes, thinning out the satay sauce with a little water if needed.
