6. Add the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth, adding vegetable broth or water of needed.

7. Laslty cook the sauce, adding the spices in a pan and cookint them for 30 seconds. Then add the tomato sauce and cook the mixture over medium heat for 5 minutes. The add the coconut milk and stir.

8. Serve on rice or quinoa and with the curried tofu on the stop.


NOTES:

You can always use oil instead of water for the cooking.

The tofu can be cooked first in a pan with some olive oil to make it crispier but if you want a healthier version, avoid this.
