This Pad Thai from the Blue Zones® Meal Planner may taste like restaurant fare, but it’s quicker, cheaper and lighter than what you’ll find on any menu. Extra firm tofu brings clean protein to this dish, and frozen broccoli packs it with additional micronutrients. Unlike most Pad Thai, this recipe contains no dietary cholesterol or fish sauce. All around, this dish is a great example of transforming a standard favorite into something more wholesome.

¼ cup water
4 ounces brown rice noodles
