As a birthday present, I received two artisan tofu packages from a friend. One is tomato basil flavored and the other, curry. Yep, that's how cool being a foodie vegan is. You get unique tofu for your birthday. Obviously, I've been hoarding the stuff while trying to figure out what special dishes to make with them. I figured the curry tofu package was pretty self-explanatory. I was to make a curry with it. Which I did...it did not disappoint.
This curry is full of tasty veggies including cauliflower and sweet potato that meld beautifully with aromatic spices and flavorful tofu. No need for special tofu though, this dish will be just as spectacular with plain tofu!
Healthy Tofu Curry
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil (I used unrefined)
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2-inch knob of ginger, peeled and minced
- 1 Tbsp. ground coriander
- 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. ground turmeric
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/8-1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder
- 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 small cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
- 2 large carrots, diced
- 12 oz. extra firm tofu, pressed and diced
- 4 medium fresh tomatoes, diced
- 2 Tbsp. lime juice
- fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
- glass noodles, rice, or quinoa (to serve with curry)
Notes: I highly recommend prepping the ingredients before starting on this recipe. Measuring all the spices and chopping all the vegetables and tofu beforehand is a smart move for this curry.
In a very large, heavy-bottomed soup pot heat the coconut oil over medium-low. Now, add in all the aromatic ingredients and saute until the onions become tender.
Next, blend in the tomato paste and the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Add in all the remaining sustenance ingredients and stir well to combine. Cover, turn to medium-low and simmer for about 20-25 minutes until the sweet potatoes and cauliflower are tender.
Once the vegetables are tender, remove from heat and stir in the lime juice.
