    Default Curried Squash and Tofu - yummy

    Just made this last night...it was amazing! I can't wait to eat the left overs today!! You can play with the recipe if you like (e.g. add chick peas, cardamon pods, use more/less garlic, etc.) but it is delicious as is!


    Curried Squash and Tofu

    2 lb tofu (firm), cubed
    3-4 tbsp oil (use your own judgement)
    1 medium butternut squash, seeded and cubed
    1/3 cup cashew butter
    1 can tomatoes (or use chopped tomatoes, just keep juice)
    2 chopped onions
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tbsp minced ginger
    3 tbsp curry paste (or powder)
    1 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tsp paprika
    1 cup vegetable stock (or water, but better with stock!)
    pinch of salt (or more to taste)


    Heat oil over medium in large pot, add onions and carmalize (about 15-20 mins, scraping sides and bottom--add a little water if it sticks too much)

    Meanwhile, puree tomatoes and cashew butter in blender or processor

    Once onions are ready, stir in garlic, cinnamon, ginger, curry, sugar, salt, paprika, and tofu

    Add tomato mixture, stock, and squash; bring to a boil, then simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until squash is done

    Garnish with chopped coriander, cashews, or whatever you see fit...or eat as is!
    It is challenging to stand as a minority; but doing so sometimes makes a hero.

    I actually tried this recipe in my slow cooker--I just threw everything in at once and also added some chikpeas, then cooked it for about 6 hours and it was just as yummy!

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just made this SOOO TASTY! This is definitiely going to become a regular dish for me......just 1 or 2 things i did differently that other people might be interested in:
    1. I boiled squash for 5 min then roasted in oil for 25min (This reduced cooking time considerably). Then added to tomato, tofu and onion mix and cooked altogether for 10min.
    2. No cashew butter in store cupboard at the moment, so used peanut butter instead - worked fine.
    3. Served it with brown rice and green salad.

    Thanks again Tasha for sharing such a delish recipe
