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 (or use a garlic press). Finely grate the ginger. Remove the centre veins from the kaffir lime leaves, then very thinly chop. TIP: The leaves are fibrous so make sure to cut them very finely! Zest the lime, then slice into wedges. Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil.


Pat the firm tofu dry with paper towel and chop into 1cm cubes. Place the tofu in a medium bowl with the plain flour, the salt and 1/2 the Thai seven spice blend. Season generously with pepper and toss to coat. Heat a generous drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the tofu and cook, turning, until browned all over, 4-5 minutes. Set aside on a plate.


Add the udon noodles (see ingredients list) to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until almost tender, 6 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook until tender, 3 minutes. Drain.


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, add the onion and carrot and cook until fragrant, 3-4 minutes


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


Divide the Thai coconut noodles between bowls and top with the tofu. Garnish with the crushed peanuts.
