Spicy Broccoli and Bean Soup

Ingredients
2
tablespoons lime juice
2
tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
8
ounces firm or extra-firm tofu (fresh bean curd), drained and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2
cup thinly sliced green onions (4)
3
cloves garlic, minced
1
tablespoon canola oil
4
cups water
2
cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth
2
cups small fresh broccoli florets
1/2
cup coarsely shredded carrot (1 medium)
3
ounces banh pho (Vietnamese wide rice noodles), broken
3/4
cup fresh bean sprouts, well rinsed
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4
cup chopped unsalted peanuts
1/4
cup thinly sliced green onion tops
1/4
cup snipped fresh basil (optional)

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine lime juice and soy sauce. Add tofu; toss gently to coat. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large saucepan cook the 1/2 cup green onions and the garlic in hot oil over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and vegetable broth. Bring to boiling. Add broccoli, carrot, and noodles. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 4 minutes.
  3. Add tofu and any liquid remaining in the bowl, the sprouts, and the crushed red pepper. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes more or until broccoli and noodles are tender and soup is heated through. Ladle soup into bowls. Top with peanuts, green onion tops, and, if desired, basil.
