Smoked tofu is more robust and flavoursome than plain tofu so it makes a great meat substitute in dishes. This Smoked Tofu and Curried New Potatoes dish is no exception.
Serves 2 as a generous main or 4 as a light main meal served with a side of salad
- 500g new potatoes
- 1 ½ tsp mustard seeds
- 1 ½ tsp coriander seeds
- 1–2 tbsp oil
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3cm piece fresh ginger, grated
- 1 heaped tsp turmeric
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 2 handfuls fresh spinach (optional)
- 1 x 200g pack smoked tofu with sesame
- Fresh coriander to garnish (optional)
- Cook the new potatoes until tender. Whilst they are cooking, toast the mustard and coriander seeds gently in a dry pan and set aside.
- When the potatoes are cooked, drain and set aside.
- In a shallow pan fry the tofu until crisp, remove from the pan then heat the oil and fry the onion until softened.
- Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute or two. Add the spices and seeds and cook for a further 30 seconds until the aromas are released.
- Stir in the spinach, and potatoes until well coated and top with the crisp smoked tofu.
- Sprinkle with coriander to serve.
Top Tip: This is a great recipe for using up leftover cooked new potatoes which will also reduce the cooking time.
