This is a very versatile recipe; while I use firm tofu, the protein component can actually be
any of your choosing such as white fish, chicken, steak, or even hard boiled eggs.
The ingredients vary each time I make this dish depending on what is on-hand. Modify this
recipe with whatever protein source or veggies that may currently be in your fridge!
1 Tbsp olive oil
½ onion, diced
¼ butternut squash, peeled & diced &/or 1 sweet potato, peeled & diced
1 brick of extra-firm tofu, chopped in to ½“ cubes (not Silken)
½ red pepper, diced
1/3 zucchini, diced
1 can artichoke hearts, rinshed & quartered
1 can coconut milk
handful cherry or grape tomatoes
2-3 handfuls baby spinach
Sauté onion in oil at low-medium temperature. Add tofu (or other protein) and firm vegetables
first (eg. squash, sweet potato) and continue to sauté. Sprinkle with your desired amount of
curry powder; I begin with a light hand and add more if my taste buds desire it.
Add peppers, zucchini, artichoke; continue to heat for a few minutes.
Empty contents of coconut milk in to pan.
Add tomatoes and spinach. Also add peeled, hard-boiled eggs at this time, if this is your protein.
Continue to simmer on low heat until the curry spices are infused throughout.
Serve over rice (brown, wild or black) or fresh spinach.
- there are many varieties of curry powders to choose from, subtle to spicy. My current favourites are different masala spice mixes by Arvinda’s; made in Toronto, sold locally at Collingwood Community Food Co-op
