Vietnamese Tofu Noodles

This noodle dish is has a refreshing savoriness, what with fresh cilantro and lemon juice, and low-sodium soy sauce and rice vinegar. It’s topped with protein-packed tofu, pan-fried to golden yumminess. My favorite part? It’s easy to cook up a serving for eight, making for a 30-minute meal that’ll last for lunch the rest of the work week!
