Spinach with Tofu recipe

This classic Indian dish of spiced spinach gets a boost of protein from healthy tofu… give it a try!

  • Preparation: 10 min
  • Cooking: 25 min
  • Ready in: 35 min


  1. Cut tofu block into 1/2-inch cubes & place in large bowl.
  2. In small bowl, combine 1 Tbsp vegetable oil, 2 tsp Kashmir Garam Masala, and 2 tsp salt; pour over tofu. Mix gently to coat tofu; set aside.
  3. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When oil starts to shimmer, add tofu in a single layer and cook until browned, about 5 min. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Wipe out pan, return it to stovetop over medium heat, and add remaining 1 Tbsp oil. Add garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender and browned, about 3 min.
  5. Stir in tomatoes and cook until they just start to soften, about 2 min.
  6. Add spinach in handfuls and stir frequently, scraping the bottom of the pan to incorporate any browned bits. Cook until spinach is very wilted and liquid is cooked off, about 7 min.
  7. Fold in tofu and cook until heated through, about 2 min.
  8. In a medium bowl, stir together remaining 2 tsp Kashmir Garam Masala and yogurt; salt to taste.
  9. Add to spinach mixture and stir until well blended; warm for 30 seconds and serve.
