Recipe Ingredients for Tofu Vindaloo

3 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tbsp ginger
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp turmeric
3 tbsp olive oil
16 oz firm tofu, drained and diced
1 large yellow onion
1 large carrot
1 small red pepper
14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 cup water

Recipe Directions for Tofu Vindaloo

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the garlic, ginger, cardamom, coriander, cumin, mustard, cayenne, cinnamon, turmeric, and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Process until smooth and set aside.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the tofu and cook until golden brown on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  3. Heat remaining 1 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and carrot, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper, cover, and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add the spice paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes and juice, peas, and water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

  4. Add tofu and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes so the tofu can absorb the flavors of the sauce. If the stew is too thick, add a little more water. Serve hot.
