  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 14- to 16-ounce package extra-firm water-packed tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 6 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 6 cups thinly sliced napa cabbage

  • 1 medium orange bell pepper, thinly sliced

  1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Put a large pot of water on to boil for spaghetti.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
