It’s fun to take a creamy break from traditional Italian marinara sauce. Sometimes I like to top my pizza with this delicious basil sauce, especially in the summer when basil is growing like a weed!

7 oz extra firm tofu (about ½ cake)
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ – ½ cup water (as needed)
Pizza Toppings: you choose the toppings you enjoy!

1 Red Onion, thinly sliced
1 Red Pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 cups Black Olives
2 cups Mushrooms

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
