I just started to cook a vegetable stock on high about an hour ago. Is the outside of the Crock Pot supposed to get really hot? It's white, I think the outside is metal, and the size is 5 quarts, if that matters.
The zucchini noodles don't require cooking—they'll add freshness and crunch to the finished dish. Make the sauce while the tofu cooks and have the other vegetables at the ready so you can toss and serve immediately.
