Chef Justine’s lemongrass paste packs a big punch of flavor in this light but satisfying Vietnamese-inspired dish, featuring our favorite tofu from Hodo Soy.
In your bag
- 5 ounces flat rice noodles
- 1 cucumber
- 1 green apple
- 5 or 6 sprigs fresh Thai basil
- 1 lemon
- 1 head baby iceberg lettuce
- ¾ pound Hodo Soy firm tofu
- 1 or 2 cloves peeled fresh garlic
- ½ cup coconut milk
- Sun Basket lemongrass paste (lemongrass - olive oil - fresh garlic - fresh ginger - turmeric)
If the rice noodles begin to clump after cooking, rinse them under cold water once more to separate them. You can add all the coconut milk to the sauce in Step 3 if you like; use a slotted spoon to transfer the tofu to the lettuce cups, then serve the remaining sauce on the side for dipping.
