The best part about this recipe is that you can use it as a base, and then make it your own by switching up the veggies and protein you use! Here we are using tofu, green peas, pepper, and broccoli, but you can try it out with edamame, cauliflower, carrots, tempeh, or whatever sounds good! You can also swap the rice noodles for brown rice noodles, cauliflower rice, regular rice, or even quinoa!
