Yield: Serves or Makes 4
Make the tofu: Mix together ingredients for the ginger lime marinade. Pour the marinade into a wide baking dish (large enough to fit the cut up tofu). Add a tablespoon of water if there is not enough marinade to cover the bottom of the dish. Place tofu in the marinade and let sit at least 10 minutes each side.
Make the salad: Soak vermicelli in just-boiled water until tender (or to your liking), about 5 minutes. Drain. Mix together vermicelli, carrots, cucumber, cilantro, green onion and lettuce and set aside.
Make the dressing: Mix together all ingredients. Taste and adjust maple syrup and red pepper flakes to taste.
Heat non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Place tofu on pan and cook until browned on the bottom. Flip, add any leftover marinade to the pan and continue to cook until the marinade evaporates and the tofu is browned.
Mix dressing with salad ingredients and top with tofu. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Store leftovers covered in the fridge (with or without dressing is fine).
