Broccoli and Tofu Sesame Noodles

We love that you can customize this recipe to suit you or your family’s taste. Not a fan of tofu? Try chicken instead. Swap the noodles for brown rice or quinoa. Keep the broccoli or switch it out for zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, or all of the above. This recipe calls for rice wine vinegar, easily found in your grocery store’s Asian food section, or even in the vinegar aisle.
