Tofu Saag with Zucchini Fennel Salad

After a few days of meals centered around meat and fish, we were eager to have something vegetarian back in the mix. We're big fans of Fine Cooking Magazine and find it a great resource for high quality recipes, so we decided to try their Tofu Saag recipe as the basis of a protein-rich vegetarian meal. Given the heartiness of the dish, we paired it with a light, tangy zucchini salad that also used up leftover fennel from earlier in the week.
