  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 200 g thin rice noodles (or sub noodle of choice)

  • Cook the Tofu Shiritaki noodles according to directions, drain then return to the pot. Add the cilantro lime sauce to the noodles, and toss to combine. Heat for another 1-2 minutes until the sauce has thickened and everything is heated through. Enjoy!
Notes
If you do not have a high-speed blender such as a Blendtec or Vitamix, you will want to soak or boil the cashews first so they will be soft enough for your blender to process.
To soak the cashews: cover the cashews with water and let soak for 6 hours or overnight. Drain before using.
Or, to boil the cashews: add the cashews to a small pot, cover with water and boil for 10 to 15 minutes until cashews are very tender. Drain before using.
