Have a summer garden? This is a great recipe! We are swimming in zucchini and basil, which is how we came up with this recipe in the first place.

You can always get creative and try different ways of slicing your tofu. In chunky squares, long strips, wedges, or small squares. We like to cut them in triangles (like in the photo above) since it makes us feel fancy. Also, it looks beautiful with the veggies and sauce on top. First, turn the tofu onto its side lengthwise, and cut it into slices. Next, cut those slices into 2 triangles. Depending on how many you want to make, you might want to double the recipe if you’re planning on serving these to family and friends. They will love it!
