Vegan Coconut Tofu Saag with charred Broccoli

Lovely creamy and green curry topped with crispy tofu and charred broccoli – seriously delicious. This is one for the whole family, creamy, mild and totally moorish. I absolutely love the vivid green colour of the creamy spinach curry and the firm tofu which is pan fried until crispy adds another texture contrast.

It’s great on its own, but even better with flatbreads and some rice. I like to create a big curry feast and add in another few curries – I particularly like it with my chickpea curry.
I really hope you love this one. Love, Niki xxx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
