Chickpea miso?! I love tofu but I like to keep my soy intake to a minimum each week. This Japanese flavored dish is absolutely perfect with a garbanzo bean based miso. You would never believe it’s not soy based! My Miso Tofu, Broccoli and Rice Noodles is one of those dinners I can whip together in less than 30 minutes. It requires minimal ingredients and it’s vegan and gluten-free! Oh, and it’s kid friendly and full of nutrition!
I get the chickpea miso from Whole Foods. The gluten-free, organic, soy-free Miso Master from Great Earth Sun is so tasty! And it’s good for you with a large amount of vital probiotic bacteria to help out the digestive system. The fermented flavor is subtle and pairs beautifully with steamed broccoli and mild tofu.
Tofu is one of my baby’s favorite foods, probably because it is easy to eat with four little teeth and super mild. I love it because it’s light yet satisfying and you can do so many different things with it. I love getting creative with tofu!
Rice noodles are another favorite of mine. My husband who typically loves old fashioned angel hair pasta loves this noodle! It’s very satisfying and my baby LOVES to play with it 🙂 These gluten-free noodles are perfect with the miso sauce and are so easy to make in just minutes.
