Spanish Style Noodles, Tofu and Vegetables

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

This is a wonderful Spanish style dish made with tofu. What I love about this meal is that you can add or subtract any vegetables you wish. Furthermore, if you adore hot spicy foods you can spice it up a bit more. Otherwise, take away some of the spiciness if you don’t care for spicy foods. So next time you are in the mood to try something different I recommend you try this simple recipe.
