Delicata Squash & Tofu Curry

November/December 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (49 votes)

This easy tofu curry, made with pretty delicata squash and hearty greens, cooks up in one skillet. To speed up the prep, use bagged chopped kale. Delicata squash’s thin skin is tender when it’s cooked, so there’s no need to peel—another time saver. Serve with quinoa or brown rice.

My family really enjoyed this meal. I didn't make any brown rice or quinoa to go with it, (my husband was primarily cooking, easy enough for him). The only issue we had was that it needed more fluid. I added more coconut milk. You could indeed add stock, but you absolutely need more fluid of some kind. We found it to be plenty spicy. Will definitely make again!

Nice basic recipe, tweak it!

I would never thing of using squash and kale in a curry, and since I like both, I was happy to find this recipe. I made few changes and it came out really good. I used chicken rather than tofu, marinated it for few hours in the fridge, butternut squash cut in small pieces, added carrots, used kale and other greens for cooking from TJ. Also, following advice of another person, I used half coconut milk, half chicken broth. It was a little too sweet (possibly beacuse of carrots and the butternut squash), so I also added fish sauce. And lots of spices.

Has potential, but bland

Were I to make this again, I'd cut the tofu smaller, dry it, and roll/toss it with curry and let it dry marinade for a few hours in the fridge. The entire dish was underseasoned, and I didn't add enough salt to make up for that. I'd add some vegetarian or chicken soup base to the coconut milk. Remember, light coconut milk is just regular diluted 50% with water; by adding soup base, you're turning that plain water into broth for more flavor. Check for seasoning after adding the soup base, and again before serving, I would think. For another flavor boost, maybe serve with a chutney.

Good base components, but they need support

Pretty Good

This was pretty easy to make and uncomplicated. I couldn't find any delicata squash so i used kobocha instead, it takes little longer to cook this type so i added the squash to the pan first for a few minutes before adding the onions, etc.. I also used some coconut oil as the oil, it adds nice coconut flavor to the dish. I may use a bit more ginger and curry powder next time as i like a stronger spice. It makes a lot and smells delicious.
