I grew up eating crumbled tofu seasoned with McKay’s Chicken Seasoning, sautéd until it started to brown. That’s how we had it every time we had tofu. And I was happy.

Then I married my husband. And that was the end of such simple tofu. He didn’t care much for it, and set to work making a style of tofu that he did like. From that point on, there was no looking back. I have developed at least three fairly unique styles of cooking tofu, and I will be sharing all three of them this month, starting with my most recent version (because that’s the one I have pictures for!). And please forgive the approximates; I never measure anything in this recipe, so I’m guessing on some things.

Curried Tofu

1 lb tofu, cut in 1/2″ cubes
2 tsp mild curry powder
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger or several dashes of powdered ginger
1-2 cloves minced garlic (optional)
4 tsp chicken style seasoning (I use Bill’s Best)
1-2 Tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (soy sauce would work, but has a stronger flavor)

Mix the above well with enough water to moisten all the seasonings. Set aside to marinate until ready (overnight is really good, but not necessary).

Heat 1/3 – 1/2 cup strong veggie broth. I use broth left over from making gluten. Slice an onion in strips exactly like this, as much as you want (I use probably 1/2 a medium/large onion) and add to broth just as it comes to a boil (don’t let it boil away before you get the onion ready!). Cover and steam onions until tender and most of the broth is gone.

Now, add tofu mixture and 1/3-1/2 can of coconut milk. The thicker the milk, the less you need. I used coconut cream last time and it was really good! Add a little water the marinating container to rinse the seasonings off the sides and pour that in too.

Just seeing the picture makes me hungry!

Stir and allow to simmer until all seasonings are well blended. We like it a little juicy, so we don’t let all the liquid evaporate.  Serve over baked cornmeal or whatever you wish. I have served it over sweet potatoes before, and we all liked that too.
