This super recipe proves that a meal without meat can truly be nutritious and delicious. Give it a try and show the family how broccoli without cheese and baked tofu are yummy in anyone's tummy when done right. We call for packaged baked tofu, but you can easily bake your own.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 large head broccoli, stemmed and cut into small florets
  • 3/4 pound enriched egg noodles
  • 3 tablespoons prepared ginger soy vinaigrette, divided
  • 1/4 cup roasted, unsalted cashews
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Thai or Teriyaki baked tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes
Method: 
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook until just tender and bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer broccoli to a large plate; set aside. Return water to a boil; add noodles and cook until al dente, 7 to 8 minutes; drain well. 

Meanwhile, put vinaigrette, cashews and 1/2 cup water into a blender and purée until smooth. Return hot noodles to pot along with cashew mixture, broccoli and tofu and cook over medium heat, tossing gently, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes more; transfer to bowls and serve.
