MAKE IT FOR: Lunch and dinner, or both!

SPECIAL NOTE: The tofu topping is optional, the recipe isn't listed.(If you need to start prep the day before or order ingredients online, we will let you know that here. Otherwise, assume the dish can be shopped, prepped and served the same day with readily available ingredients.)
