In this vegetarian tikka masala recipe, we combine crisp tofu pieces and vegetables in a spiced tomato sauce to make a healthy and flavorful dish. If you like spicy food, increase the amount of crushed red pepper. Serve with steamed brown rice for a healthier take on a classic takeout dish.

do not use 3 tablespoons of garam masala!!

My first time cooking this dish, and using garam masala. I wish I'd read the reviews before making this dish and having to throw this out, I hate wasting food. I had a feeling that there was a typo in the recipe and it was meant to be 3 teaspoons, not 3 tablespoons of garam masala. I'll try this again, and add spinach at the end.

I switched coconut cream for the half and half and it added a wonderfully sweet taste. LOVE this recipe. So easy. Make sure you "crisp" the tofu when you fry it.

Great with these changes

If you want a quick and delicious Tikka Masala recipe for dinner tonight, then this recipe is the one you should try....but with changes. After reading the reviews, I substituted the spices as follows: 1 Tblsp minced ginger, 1 Tblsp minced garlic, 3 tsp garam masala, 2 tsp coriander, 2 tsp ground cumin, 1/4 tsp chili plus the salt and pepper as listed. I followed the recipe exactly except for the changes in the spices and it was a delicious dinner that I would make again.

Quick, vegetarian

Too tomato-ey

This recipe is just awful. They call for way too much tomatoes, it turned out bland and just overall disappointing. Nothing close to the taste of tikka masala from even a mediocre Indian restaurant.
