-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 (10.5-ounce) packages reduced-fat firm tofu, drained
Cooking spray
6 cups hot cooked vermicelli (about 12 ounces uncooked pasta)

Combine first 11 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk until blended. Cut each tofu cake crosswise into 4 slices. Place tofu slices in soy sauce mixture; cover and marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Remove tofu slices from marinade, reserving marinade. Add tofu slices to skillet; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from skillet. Set aside; keep warm.

Add reserved marinade to skillet; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Spoon noodles onto plates; top with tofu slices. Drizzle warm marinade over tofu and noodles.
