    From the Test Kitchen

    This flavorful dish features tofu—diced and baked with a coating of warming vadouvan curry powder—served over a vibrant mix of vegetables and ginger simmered in our new korma sauce (an Indian cuisine staple made from a blend of aromatics, coconut cream, cashew butter, and traditional spices like garam masala). A bed of hearty brown rice is perfect for soaking up all of the saucy bites.

    tips & techniques
    Drain, press & dice the tofu
    1 Drain, press & dice the tofu

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Drain the tofu, then place on a paper towel-lined plate. Place several layers of paper towels on top, then place a separate heavy-bottomed pot (or pan) on top of the paper towels. Set aside to release the excess liquid at least 10 minutes. Transfer the pressed tofu to a cutting board; medium dice.

    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Quarter lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and the hollow green tops. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Roughly chop the cashews.

    Line a sheet pan with foil; lightly oil the foil. Transfer the diced tofu to the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the curry powder; gently toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Bake 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and slightly crispy. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced pepper, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and chopped ginger; season with salt and pepper.
