Drain the noodles in a colander over the sink, then pour the kettleful of hot water over the noodles to remove any starch and stop them from sticking. ★ Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. ★ Mix the Chinese five spice, cornflour and salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl and toss the cubes of tofu in this mixture to coat. ★ Heat 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil in a wok over a medium heat and toss in the tofu, ginger and garlic pastes. Cook for 4-5 minutes until golden brown, then remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and keep to one side. ★ Add the remaining coconut oil to the wok, turn up the heat and throw in the vegetables. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until coloured but the vegetables still retain some bite. ★ Return the tofu to the wok along with the cooked noodles and move everything around in the wok to heat through a little. ★ Spoon the noodles and vegetables on to a large serving platter and drizzle over the sauce, tossing it through the noodles and vegetables. Sprinkle with the chopped cashews and coriander.
