  • 1 Tbsp. minced ginger (Ginger People)
  • 2 Tbsp. Green Curry Paste (Thai Kitchen)
  • 2-14oz. cans organic light coconut milk
  • 4-6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 Tbsp. miso paste
  • 1 Tbsp. tamari or liquid coconut aminos
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • Juice from 1 lime/lemon
  • Pink Himalayan salt, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste

  • Crushed cashews or peanuts for garnish

METHOD

  • In a large pot over medium heat, brown cubed tofu with 1 Tbsp. oil for 2-3 minutes.  Turn and brown for another 2-3 minutes.

  • Incorporate minced garlic, turmeric, ginger and curry paste.  Stir and cook for another minute, or until aromatic.
  • Add coconut milk, veggie broth, miso, and tamari/aminos.  Bring to a gentle boil then reduce heat to simmer.  Partially cover and let simmer for 8-10 minutes.

ROASTED PURPLE CAULIFLOWER

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 head purple cauliflower (or any color), broken into bite-sized florets
  • drizzle of avocado or olive oil
  • pinch of pink Himalayan salt
  • pinch of ground pepper

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place florets onto lined baking sheet and toss, using clean hands, with oil and seasonings.
  • Roast for 30-40 minutes, tossing occasionally, until cauliflower is gently browned and crispy around the edges.

 

NOTES

  • Don’t have any tofu on hand, or don’t enjoy it? Try adding 1-15oz. can of rinsed/drained chickpeas instead.  Incorporate toward the end, before adding noodles.  Chickpeas add a nice texture, neutral flavor and a good amount of plant protein to just about any dish.
