Thai Green Tofu Noodles

Tofu is a low fat meat alternative made by coagulating soy milk, and marinating it in  curry paste allows it to take on the flavours of the curry. A stir-fry is a great way of incorporating lots of vegetables into a meal. This recipe uses firm silken tofu which crumbles on cooking, if you want a more meat-like texture use firm tofu.
