This plant-based powerbowl is an excellent source of calcium thanks to the additions of tofu and broccoli. A handful of chopped cilantro and lime-pickled chile peppers lend zip and brightness to the creamy coconut-based broth.

  • Place chiles in a small bowl and cover with lime juice to pickle them. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a pot over medium. Add ginger, shallot, cilantro stems and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add green curry paste and cook 1 minute more. Add coconut milk and 1/2 cup water; season with salt and pepper.

  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and add broccoli florets. Simmer, partially covered, until florets are tender, about 3 minutes. Add tofu, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve with brown rice, cilantro leaves, and reserved pickled chiles.
