Curried Tofu in Pita Bread
Make sure your curry powder is less than six months old to ensure the best flavor! Using neutral-tasting canola oil helps those lively spices stand out. This dish is also great simply served with rice.

Soba Noodles with Mushroom, Spinach & Tofu
Instead of high-sodium packaged ramen for lunch, try healthy soba buckwheat noodleswith a protein-packed vegetarian sauté. Because mushrooms tend to soak up so much oil, they are sweated in a covered pan so that they soften in their own juices. While tofu is the traditional protein in this Japanese dish, you can substitute leftover cubed chicken or turkey for the tofu, and peas for the edamame, if you like.
