Almond Tofu Curry

You can’t beat a good curry and this super healthy, super tasty recipe is a testament to that!

Sweet Potato Nutrition

The sweet potato forms just a small part of the recipe but is actually where a lot of the sustenance and nutrition lies!

Sweet potatoes are especially high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, thiamin, niacin and riboflavin. They’re also high in carotenoids, which is where their fantastic colour comes from!

Tofu Health Benefits

Adding tofu to this dish also helps to make it a filling, wholesome meal. Tofu contains beneficial amounts of protein, as well as being a great plant-based source of calcium.

Tofu also contains a type of phytoestrogens known as isoflavones. These plant hormones have health-boosting properties and are thought to protect against osteoporosis, heart disease, and certain types of cancer.

Almond Tofu Curry Recipe

To make this curry for two people you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 chillies, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • An inch of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of whole almonds
  • 1 tablespoon of tamarind paste
  • A dash of water
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 block of firm tofu, cut into chunks
  • 400ml of coconut milk
  • 200ml of vegetable stock
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into chunks
  • 2 cups of broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach


To get started, place the onion, chillies, garlic, ginger, almonds and tamarind paste into your food processor with a dash of water. You can then blitz into a paste. Feel free to add a dash more water if necessary.

Add this paste to a large skillet with the coconut oil and cook on a medium heat. After a few moments, add in the chunks of tofu. Stir the skillet and cook for 15 minutes before adding in the coconut milk and vegetable stock. Continue to stir well and add in the sweet potato and broccoli.

Leave to cook for ten minutes before you add in the spinach and then cook for a further five minutes before serving. You can either eat as it is or serve over brown rice or quinoa.
