  • 8oz Rice noodles, dried
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/3 cup Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Fish Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Lime juice

  • 1 cup Green onions, chopped, divided
  • 2/3 cup Hazelnuts, toasted, skin removed, coarsely chopped, divided

Soak noodles for 30 minutes in hot tap water; drain and set aside. (Noodles will be flexible, but not soft.)

Mix sugar, water, ketchup, fish sauce, lime juice and cayenne pepper in small bowl; set aside.

Heat oil in wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add tofu and garlic, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Add noodles, stirring constantly to keep from sticking. Add ketchup mixture, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until sauce is absorbed.

Push noodles to side of pan. Add egg and stir until cooked. Add bean sprouts, 1/2 cup green onions and 1/3 cup hazelnuts, stirring until mixed with egg and noodles.

Mound mixture on large serving plate. Sprinkle remaining green onions and hazelnuts over top. Serve immediately.
