Tofu, chickpea and kale curry

Tofu curry 17

 

Curry up! Don’t you just love a good curry? It’s hard to beat the combination of aromatic spices, fragrant fresh herbs and warming chilli and ginger.

This tofu, chickpea and kale curry ticks all those boxes and uses just store-cupboard basics, making it a cheap, but favour-packed meal. You have a creamy tomato sauce but no dairy is required! The sauce is made creamy by using pumpkin puree or sweet potato mash (get those extra veggies in!). You can also add extra protein powder or chia seeds for extra nutrition.

This recipe is a hit with friends when I am entertaining; it can be rustled up in under 45 mins (including prep time) and it can stay on the hob ready to welcome your hungry guests. I love to serve mine with some fresh coriander, limejuice and a side order of wholemeal rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice or black lentils.
