    Broiled Miso Butter Tofu with Sesame Broccoli and Cucumber Noodles

    As a good source of plant-based protein and calcium, tofu deserves to be given the royal treatment with a slick, salty-sweet miso butter. Broccoli and cucumber noodles round out the meal for a vibrant, healthy, and fast alternative to takeout.

    Tip: The hot tofu and broccoli with the cool cucumber noodles is refreshing; however, if you prefer an all-hot dinner, serve with cooked brown rice, quinoa, or brown rice noodles.
