Peach Blossom Tips:

*This recipe is best served in miso soup bowls and eaten with chopsticks, which always adds a bit of fun to the dinner time experience. (My husband is a pro – the kids and I definitely take a more creative approach in how we operate our chopsticks!) If you prefer to use a spoon, I would suggest breaking the rice noodles into thirds before cooking and chopping the veggies a bit smaller.

*A great way to get the asparagus just right is to let the stems soak in water for about 15 minutes. The tough, woody ends will snap right off – a perfect job for the kids to do!

*If tofu isn’t your thing, you can substitute chicken, or just make it with the veggies – it will be delicious either way!

*You can definitely use freshly grated ginger in this recipe, but in the interest of keeping things real around here, I’ll confess that I’m not above taking a few time-saving shortcuts in the kitchen when there are high quality alternatives available. And the Gourmet Garden Ginger that I use in this recipe meets that criteria. If you are visual like me and want to know what you are looking for when you go grocery shopping, I’ve included a picture to help you find it faster. Most major grocery stores will have this stocked in their produce department.

*This recipe pairs great with a salad (I added cucumbers, shredded carrots, broccoli slaw and roasted sunflower seeds to a bagged spring salad mix) topped with this dressing. It’s also yummy served with vegetable spring rolls or egg rolls.
