Health Rating


1 cup Vegetable stock/broth, low sodium
1 clove(s) Garlic (thinly sliced)
1 1/2 cup Butternut Squash Puree, canned, organic
1/4 tsp Soy sauce, low sodium
1/4 tsp Kosher salt (to taste)
57 gm Rice noodles, dry
1/4 cup cubes Tofu, regular, soft
1 green onion (stem) Green onion, scallion, ramp (sliced diagonally)
1/2 tsp Sesame oil
1/2 cup Peas Shoots
1/4 tsp Sesame seeds, black (optional for garnish)


  1. Combine the squash, broth, salt, garlic and soy sauce in a medium pot, and stir to mix well until bubbling and hot (basically to a light boil), about 3-4 minutes.
  2. While the broth is heating up, cube the fresh tofu into one-inch pieces or a little smaller, as per your preference. Slice the green onion, and wash and trim the pea shoots, removing the tough stems.
  3. Take the strand of dry rice noodles, and with your hands, snap them in half to shorten to noodle strands, and place them in a generously sized serving bowl of your choice.
  4. When the broth has reached a bubbling boil, remove it from the heat and pour all of it over the rice noodles directly into the serving bowl. Using a fork and a quick, firm hand, push any errant noodle strands under the broth to submerge any loose pieces. Cover the bowl immediately with a small plate, and set your timer for 6 minutes.
  5. When the 6 minutes is up, remove the plate from the bowl and stir the noodles to break them up a little. To serve, push the noodles over to the side a little, making room for the tofu, scallions & pea shoots which can be arranged directly into the broth as you like. Place a little Sambal Oelek in the center of the bowl, and finish by pouring the toasted sesame oil into the bowl along with the black sesame seeds to garnish.
  6. Serve right away with chopsticks or a fork.
