These teriyaki tofu noodle bowls come together in only fifteen minutes, thanks to Nasoya’s Plantspired TofuBaked. They’re high protein, nutritious, and flavorful. You might want to double the miso chili sauce: it’s addictive! The last year has really taught me how to use my favorite store-bought products wisely and effectively. Like many people, I developed a case of serious cooking fatigue in quarantine. Relying on a few grocery store staples (OK, more than a few) helped me to avoid feeling overwhelmed. It gave…
