Cook the glass noodles
Bring a large sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the glass noodles and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside. Wipe out the pot. While the noodles are cooking, prepare the tofu.
Prep and cook the tofu
- Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into 2-inch cubes.
- In a medium [large] bowl, stir together the cornstarch and salt-and-pepper blend. Dredge the tofu cubes in the cornstarch mixture, turning to coat all sides; shake off any excess.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu and cook, turning as needed, until browned and crisp, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, start preparing the vegetables.
Prep and cook the vegetables
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; thinly slice the pepper.
In the same pot used for the noodles, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the edamame and spinach (the spinach in batches if needed), season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the edamame are heated through and the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the dish
