  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan and cook rice noodles about 3 min., or until just tender. Pour noodles into a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Divide noodles into two 2-cup (500 mL) heatproof containers, such as wide-mouth glass canning jars.

  2. Place tofu, carrot and cabbage on top of noodles in containers. Whisk together honey, miso, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and hot pepper flakes in small bowl. Pour half the sauce over vegetables in each container. Divide green onion, cilantro and peanuts into containers. Seal and refrigerate up to 2 days.

  3. When ready to eat, pour boiling water into container, leaving 1 in. (2.5 cm) room at top. Cover loosely and let sit 5 min. Stir well before eating.
