I have a few delicious curry recipes on my blog at this point and surely by now, you know how much I love them ?  One of the first that I ever posted was this Loaded Veggie Tikka Masala and OMG is it the best thing on my blog ever. People often ask me what my favorite recipe is on the blog and that tikka masala is HIGH on the list.

This recipe was originally supposed to be part of tofu week but I just didn’t manage to get the blog post done in time. But, I figured better late than never because I seriously LOVE this recipe!

You could technically make this dish in just one skillet but I MUCH prefer to cook the tofu at the same time, in a separate skillet, as the curry. This makes the whole dish comes together in just about 20 minutes. Once the tofu is nicely sauteed, you can simply mix it into the curry. and BAM you’re done.

We almost always serve ours with basmati rice but this could be served with anything you like or even eaten all on it’s own!

  4. Mix in the coconut milk, broth, almond butter, soy sauce, salt, and pepper and cook for 5 additional minutes as the veggies continue to cook. Stir in the bell pepper and snap peas and cook for 10 additional minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  5. Serve on it’s own or over quinoa or basmati rice and enjoy!!
