Preparation

  1. In a bowl whisk together the soy sauce, peanut butter, vegetable stock, garlic, sesame oil, lime juice, ginger and cayenne until well incorporated.  Set aside.
  2. In a shallow dish place the Panko and season with salt and pepper.  In a second shallow dish pour the coconut milk.
  3. Dip each tofu cube into the coconut milk and then roll in the Panko.  When all cubes are coated put into a saute pan over medium heat with the sesame and vegetable oil.  Allow to brown on all sides. If the Panko does not adhere that is OK- it will form a nice crumb that will be used to top the udon noodles.
  4. As the tofu is cooking place the udon noodles in a pot of water and cook according to package directions.  When done, drain noodles and place in a bowl.  Add the peanut sauce and mix well.
  5. To assemble place noodles on a dish, top with the crispy tofu and any crumbs from the pan.  Top with green onion.
