  3. Cook sweet potato noodles in a large pan with olive oil for 7-8 minutes, tossing often until slightly softened. So they do not dry out too much add 2 tblsp water. Once the noodles are finished tip into a large bowland add half the sesame cashew sauce and mix well

  5. Next add crushed garlic and remaining half of sauce and simmer until the tofu begins absorbing the sauce then add lime juice and keep cooking until tofu starts to get crispy, then add chopped nuts and mix well
