Serving Size: 4
1 tablespoon water
2 medium onions — thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper — thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves — minced
1 medium zucchini — thinly sliced
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 pounds firm tofu — cut into 1″ cubes
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Heat the water in a nonstick skillet, then add the onions. Sauté until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper and sauté until it begins to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the zucchini and thyme and sauté until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes.
Stir in the tomatoes; reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Stir in the tofu, salt, and pepper; simmer, uncovered, until heated through, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in the basil just before serving.
