1. Boil a kettle. Trim the tenderstem broccoli and slice in half widthways. Peel and thinly slice the carrot into long thin ribbons. Thinly slice the spring onions.

2. Drain the tofu and pat dry with paper towel. Slice the tofu into 1cm thick slices. Spread out onto a plate and sprinkle over 2/3 of the cornflour until evenly coated on each side, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Heat a large frying pan with 1/2 tbsp oil on a medium-high heat and cook the tofu for 15 mins, turning occasionally, until turning golden.

3. Meanwhile, pour boiling water into a large saucepan until 3/4 full, bring to the boil and plunge the brown rice noodles into the pan. Remove from the heat and leave to soften for 10 mins, then drain and rinse. Set aside.

4. To make the teriyaki sauce; peel and grate the ginger and finely slice the chilli (remove the seeds for less heat). In a small bowl, mix the remaining cornflour with 1 tbsp cold water. To this bowl, add the tamari, ginger, maple syrup, half of the chilli, half of the juice from the lime, half of the sesame oil and 1 tbsp cold water.

5. Heat a separate frying pan with the remaining sesame oil on a medium-high heat and cook the tenderstem for 3-4 mins until softening, turn down the heat and add the carrots and spring onions to the pan for a minute, then stir through the brown rice noodles and only half of the teriyaki sauce, cook for a minute until heated through.

6. Add the remaining teriyaki sauce to the tofu pan and cook for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened. Sprinkle over the black sesame seeds.

7. Spoon the veggie noodles into two warm bowls and top with the tofu slices. Sprinkle over the remaining chill and the remaining juice from the lime.
