Veggie Tofu Noodles
Are you getting in a cooking rut and getting sick of your usual meal routine? Well, you’re in luck!
Dr. Rubin has developed and shared this light and summery pasta recipe with all of us. It’s gluten-free, vegan, and chock full of veggies. It does have tofu, which people with soy allergies may not tolerate well but you could easily make this recipe with another protein source or simply leave the tofu out and add more veggies!

While the onion is browning, fill a pot with water to start boil for the rice noodles

As much as you prefer.
