Quick Tofu Un-Meatballs

This is a quick and easy tofu un-meatball recipe. This can also be served a delicious plant-based vegan burger. If you have fresh parsley and fresh basil on hand, substitute one tablespoon of each for the dried Italian seasoning. Tofu contains all essential amino acids, making it an excellent plant-based protein source.
