This salad is the gift that keeps on giving. It takes less than 30 mins to chuck together and can easily be meal-prepped for future you, when you just can't be bothered to cook. It's absolutely packed with flavour, protein and fresh veggies so makes the perfect lunch or dinner on a hot summers day.


Start by heating the vegetable oil in a medium frying pan. Once hot, add the broken rice paper pieces one by one and fry until crisp. They should puff up immediately. Remove with tongs and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil.

In a bowl, mix the tofu pieces with the soy sauce, garlic granules and corn starch so they're completely and evenly coated. Add the tofu pieces to the hot vegetable oil from before and fry for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Plate everything up starting with a base of cooked vermicelli noodles, the chopped and sliced veg, crispy tofu and fresh herbs. Drizzle over the dressing, and some extra chilli oil (if you like a bit of heat) then sprinkle over some chopped peanuts and dig in!
