  • ½ cup Brown Rice
  • 2 Scallions
  • 6 oz Carrots

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

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.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle 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. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened.

Add the tomato sauce and tomato achaar to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add the cream (carefully, as the liquid may splatter).

Serve the cooked rice topped with the finished curry and baked tofu. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions and chopped cashews. Enjoy!
