    Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut tofu into 4 crosswise cuts, resulting in thinner tofu rectangles of the original same size. Then cut that into quarters, resulting in 16 tofu rectangles.

    In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic powder, and maple syrup. Add tofu and let sit for 5 mins, rotating occasionally.

  • 3

    Meanwhile, prepare peanut sauce by combining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mixing until well incorporated.

  • 4

    After 5 mins, shake cornstarch over the tofu and toss to coat. It will become wet from the liquid in the bowl, which is fine.

  • 5

    Carefully add 4 pieces of tofu to each skewer, placing them vertically. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 mins, then rotate skewers and bake for 5 more mins.

  • 6

    Meanwhile, prepare noodles according to directions on package. Drain and rinse, then place in a small frypan along with sesame oil, curry paste, green onion, and red pepper flakes.

  • 7

    Cook for 1 to 2 mins over low heat until well incorporated, and the paste is absorbed into the noodles. Toss with tongs to easily mix.

  • 8

    Prepare cucumber by mixing ingredients together in a small bowl.

  • 9

    Once the tofu is done, be careful as the skewers will be hot. Divide noodles, skewers, and cucumbers evenly between two plates and drizzle peanut sauce over the tofu.
