Tofu spinach curry is vegan, delicious and easy to make! This healthy curry recipe will soon become a favourite with all the family!

Folks, todays tasty tofu spinach curry is another amazing holiday inspired recipe!

Just like the delicious sticky peanut butter tofu stir-fry recipe I posted a few weeks ago.

This is another dish Lady Lynne and I were lucky enough to come across whilst on holiday in Hong Kong earlier this year.

Again, one mouthful of this mild tofu curry and my taste buds went into overdrive!

I just had to recreate it as soon as I got back home!

This tofu spinach curry is designed to suit all tastes, as well as being vegan and gluten free.

It’s a healthy reduced fat, low calorie tofu curry too. 

As with the majority of my curry recipes I’ve used the minimum amount of oil to make the sauce. 

Just enough to soften the onions first, then the food processor does the rest.

The curry sauce itself has bags of flavour in it but isn’t too hot or spicy.

Tofu on its own can be very bland.

However, when you cook it in this lovely curry sauce it absorbs the flavours making it much tastier.

If you haven’t tried a tofu curry recipe before then why not give this easy one a go?

Coming Thursday on Neil’s Healthy Meals

OK folks so I’m going to switch next Thursday from this vegan recipe to one that involves chicken.

Leftover chicken to be exact. That’s the way this blog swings you see. 

Lady Lynne and I enjoy a diet of lots of vegetarian food with the occasional chicken and or meat recipe in between. 

My leftover chicken burgers recipe is a great one for using up any remains of that roast chicken.

Join me next Thursday for that!
