Vegan Tikka Masala

with Tofu
  • Vegetarian icon


Tikka masala is as traditional as Indian cuisine gets. We take all of its big flavors and round out the sauce with cool, light Greek yogurt, resulting in a dish that is much milder than you might expect. Served alongside brown basmati rice, fresh warm naan, and zesty, traditional chutneys, tonight’s meal is truly a special one.


  • Tofu

    Basmati rice 


    Cauliflower florets

    Mango chutney 
    (Mango, jengibre, canela, anís estrellado, ralladura de naranja, ralladura de lima, cayena, vinagre blanco, coco rallado)

  • Tikka masala sauce
    (Crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, vegan sour cream, curry powder, fresh turmeric, young ginger, reduced white wine, reduced white wine, sweet onions, slow cooked garlic, coriander seed, cumin seed)

    (GLUTEN FREE: Gluten-free tortillas)

Getting Your Kids Involved:

Jazz up the naan by having your kids brush the pieces with oil and then sprinkle with freshly chopped garlic or garlic powder before warming it in the oven.

Encouraging Picky Eaters:

Naan is bread, and since we find most kids love bread, have little ones break off pieces of naan, fill it with pieces of chicken and top with their favorite chutney to make mini Indian “tacos,” or whatever name you come up with that will get them excited to eat.


1Step One

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  

Cut the tofu into 1.5" cubes and bake for 8 minutes. Pour the rice into a measuring cup, note the volume, and place into a medium pot. Add twice the amount of water to the rice (i.e. for 1 cup of rice, use 2 cups of water). Cover the pot and place over high heat. Bring just to a boil and, keeping the lid on, reduce the heat to the lowest setting possible. Let cook for 30-40  minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.  Remove the from the heat, fluff the rice with a fork, and cover again. Leave covered until ready to serve. While the rice is cooking, chop the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces on a clean cutting board. 

2Step Two

Pour the tikka masala sauce in the pan and return to medium heat. When the sauce is warm, add the chickpeas, the potatoes, and the cauliflower. Bring just to a boil over high heat, and then reduce to a simmer. Add 1/2 -1 cup of water and mix until you reach your preferred consistency.

Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Once the cauliflower is tender, add the tofu into the pan and gently stir.

3Step Three

While the masala sauce is cooking, place the naan on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until golden and warmed through. When the tikka masala has finished cooking remove from the heat, salt to taste, cover, and set aside until ready to serve.

4Step Four

Serve the tikka masala accompanied by the rice, the naan, and the traditional chutneys on the side. Enjoy!
