Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil. Cut the broccoli into small florets, then roughly chop the stalk. Thinly slice the red onion. Cut the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Finely grate the garlic and ginger. Remove the stem from the makrut lime leaves, then very finely chop. Zest the lemon to get a pinch, then slice into wedges. TIP: Makrut lime leaves have a fibrous texture, so you want to cut them very thinly!


Pat the firm tofu dry with paper towel and cut into 1cm cubes. In a medium bowl, combine the plain flour, the salt and 1/2 the Thai seven spice blend, then season with pepper. Add the tofu and toss to coat. In a large frying pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Cook the tofu, turning, until browned all over, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Cook the broccoli in the boiling water for 1 minute. Add the udon noodles to the broccoli and cook until tender, a further 2 minutes. Drain the broccoli and noodles.


While the noodles are cooking, return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the onion and carrot until softened, 3-4 minutes.


Add the garlic, ginger, makrut lime and the remaining Thai seven spice blend to the veggies and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the coconut cream, soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon zest and a generous squeeze of lemon juice. Cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Add the drained noodles and broccoli to the sauce and stir until combined and warmed through.


Divide the saucy coconut noodles between bowls and top with the Thai-spiced tofu. Garnish with the crushed peanuts. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
