- Whisk all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Cook noodles according to package instructions. I boiled a large pot of water, turned off the heat and added the brown rice noodles while stirring to separate them. Set it aside for about 5 minutes or until the noodles are tender but firm. Drain well and add to a big mixing bowl.
- Add shredded carrot, radish, red pepper, green onions, tofu and mix well.
- Stir in the sauce and mix well to evenly distribute it with the noodles and veggies. Rest the salad for at least 30 minutes.
- Divide the spinach between serving plates, top with noodle salad, chopped cilantro, roasted peanuts and mung beans sprouts and serve. Enjoy!!
