For the tofu:

  1. Cook the noodles and allow to cool.

  3. Press and slice the tofu into thin strips. Heat a large frying pan with a little coconut oil and fry off the tofu strips on all sides until golden and crisp. Pour over the tamari soy sauce and syrup to coat. Cook for 1min or until the liquid has evaporated and the tofu is sticky.

Repeat with the rest of the wrappers.
