  • 1 TB olive oil (a few TB of veggie broth if you do use oil)
  • 1/4 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 c vegetable broth
  • 2 c butternut squashed baked*
  • 1 TB tamari or soy sauce if not gf
  • 4 oz rice noodles
  • 16 oz non-GMO baked tofu cubed*
  • 2 c spinach
  • Toppings:
  • 4 tsp sambal oelek (Asian hot sauce)
  • 4 tsp black and/or white sesame seeds


  1. Cook noodles until they are just shy of al dente and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, add olive oil, onion and garlic to pan and cook for 3-5 minutes.

  3. Add onion & garlic along with veggie broth, butternut squash and tamari to a blender and blend until smooth.

  4. Transfer the sauce to a large saute pan/pot and bring to a boil.

  5. Lower heat to medium/low, add rice noodles, and cook the noodles to your liking. If the noodles soak up more of the sauce than you'd like, feel free to add a little more veggie broth to make things saucier. 

  6. Add to bowls, top with spinach, tofu, sambal oelek, and sesame seeds.

  7. Stir and serve immediately.
