How to make Vegan Palak Paneer


Step 1: Dice your tofu into big cubes. Spray a large pan with olive oil cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Pan-fry the tofu cubes on each side until it is firm and slightly browned.


Step 2: Take the tofu out of the pan, place in a bowl and set aside. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blend the tomatoes and ginger until they come together in a smooth puree.


Step 3: In a large bowl, combine the tomato sauce mixture with the coriander powder, turmeric, garam masala cumin powder and cayenne.


Step 4: Heat coconut oil in a large pan. Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to the oil; if it cracks/pops right away, then the oil is hot enough and is ready to go.


Step 5: Add the coconut milk mixture, and let cook on low another 4-5 minutes until everything is combined. Add the cubed tofu and fold it gently into the creamy spinach curry mixture.
