When you have leftover veggies and noodles, and want to take advantage of delicious nectarines too then you turn them into a super tasty, sweet and tangy vinaigrette. These ingredients came together in the most delectable way.

Are you familiar with the history of ginger? The Chinese were using ginger as far back as the 6th century B.C., and Arab traders introduced the spice to the Mediterranean before the 1st century A.D. Spanish settlers brought ginger to the New World in the 1500s.

Ginger has a long and honored tradition in folk medicine, and for good reason, according to modern research that is exploring the scientific basis for ginger’s effects. So far, it’s been know to help with nausea and motion sickness, migraines, and arthritis.

Plus we have the added benefit of tofu in this recipe. Did you know that volume for volume, soy contains more protein than beef, more calcium than milk, more lecithin than eggs, and more iron than beef? It’s a powerhouse of nutrition.

This bowl has all the wonderful fresh ingredients of summer. Also the yumminess of roasted asparagus and Brussels sprouts. AND not to mention the mushrooms, cucumber, and spinach. In addition it’s all tossed in a homemade yummy ginger nectarine vinaigrette.

I hope you enjoy the Tofu Veggie Noodle Bowl with Ginger Nectarine Vinaigrette. Because seriously, what’s not to enjoy?
