Cook the rice noodles
While the water heats and the noodles cook, prepare the ingredients for the laksa.
Prep the laksa ingredients
- Trim the stem ends from the green beans; cut the beans into 1-inch lengths.
- Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro; divide into two equal portions, one for the sauce and one for garnish.
Cook the tofu laksa
Add the tofu, coconut milk, brown sugar, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are just tender and the tofu is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the chiles, and stir in half the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the tofu laksa cooks, prepare the remaining garnishes.
Prep the remaining garnishes
- Cut the lime into wedges.
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Time the rice noodles.
- Divide the cilantro.
- Measure the water for the laksa.
- Strip the mint leaves.
