Wash produce before use
Soak the rice noodles
While the water heats and the noodles soak, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Make the cucumber salad
- Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim off the ends; cut the cucumber lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices, then crosswise into ½-inch pieces.
- Cut the apple into quarters and cut away the core. Cut the fruit into ½-inch pieces.
- Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Juice the lemon.
Prep the lettuce; cook the tofu
- Trim the root end from the iceberg lettuce; separate the leaves.
- Crumble the tofu into corn-kernel-sized pieces.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
- Measure out ¼ cup coconut milk; save the rest for another use.
Add the tofu, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and lemongrass paste and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in ¼ cup coconut milk, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
