Cauliflower & Tofu Curry

Cauliflower, garbanzo beans and tofu are subtle on their own, but together they make an awesome base for curry. We have this recipe weekly because one of us is always craving it. —Patrick McGilvray, Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets (about 3 cups)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) fire-roasted crushed tomatoes
  • 1 package (14 ounces) extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Hot cooked rice
  • Chopped fresh cilantro


  • In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add carrots and onion; cook and stir until onion is tender, 4-5 minutes. Stir in seasonings.
  • Add cauliflower, tomatoes, tofu and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Stir in garbanzo beans, coconut milk and peas; return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and cauliflower is tender, 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve with rice. Sprinkle with cilantro.
Health Tip: Just one-half cup cooked cauliflower provides nearly half the daily value for vitamin C, not to mention sulfur-containing compounds that may help protect against certain cancers.

    We loved this! Make sure to use fresh high quality curry powder and coconut milk (not coconut water) for amazing taste. This is quick, easy and very tasty.

    I found this to be very bland. I made as directed but when it was done I had to add more curry, salt, and pepper. There was no depth and tasted watery. Somehow, for me, it just missed the mark.

    This was easy and inexpensive to make. I wasn't sure because it doesn't use very much spice but it turned out really nice- yummy!!
