Long days of school can be completely stressful, and when you're stressed a yummy home-cooked meal *always* hits different. This nourish bowl recipe is best served warm and gives you an unmatched sweet and savory flavor you'll crave for weeks. Did I mention its base is noodles? No one said eating healthy meant you couldn't eat your comfort foods. If you're not a fan of tofu just replace it with a different protein for the same amazing end result.
