Spinach Tofu with Turmeric Rice

This vibrant lunch comes from Colorful Recipes. It’s super filling and the fresh lemon juice really brings everything together beautifully. You can use your favorite spices to change it up each time you make it but I loved how the cumin, fennel seeds, and chili powder paired with the turmeric rice.
