Method:

  1. Warm a large, deep sauce pan over medium heat with 1 tbsp. oil.
  2. Add onion, garlic and spices and sauteé until transparent. About 3 minutes. Add cauliflower, carrot, potato, mushroom, tomato and sauteé another few minutes.
  3. Add coconut milk, water/broth, and a sprinkle of salt. Bring to a boil. Then put on a low simmer with a lid. Continue cooking for 20-25 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  4. * If adding tofu. While the curry is cooking, prepare tofu. Press water out of the tofu then cut into small squares. I like to put the tofu pieces into my deep fryer until golden brown/crispy. You can also fry them in a skillet using a few tablespoons of oil and turning them over once brown on each side. Drain on a paper towel.
  5. During the last 5 minutes of cooking time, place fried tofu into the curry-   As well as the bean sprouts and frozen peas. They will instantly soften.
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings. I always put more spice and salt!
  7. Serve in a bowl with a side of cooked rice drizzled with liquid aminos or soy sauce! Garnish with basil and squeeze lime juice on top.
  8. ENJoi!
