  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeds removed & thinly sliced
  • 200g PlantVita shiitake or cremini mushrooms,
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder/garam masala powder
  • 2 tsp. turmeric
  • 400g PlantVita Firm or Extra-Firm Tofu
  • 400g coconut milk (light or full-fat)

Let’s get cooking: 

  1. In a medium pot, add rice and water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook until soft.
  2. In a large pot, heat the coconut oil over medium heat, add onion, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic, ginger, sweet potato, bell peppers, and mushrooms, cook another 2 – 3 minutes.
  3. Add curry powder/garam masala and turmeric, cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add in the coconut milk, remaining liquids, and tofu, stir gently. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes, until sweet potato is fork-tender.
  4. Turn off the heat, add in the lime juice and leafy greens, stirring gently until the greens soften and wilt. 
  5. Serve the tofu curry overtop rice and enjoy with fresh cilantro on top and a squeeze of more lime juice if you like. Pairs well with homemade Vegan Naan
