Mmm...palak paneer the creamy cheese is my favorite part, I'll admit it. But the spinach can be super yummy, too. I'm really particular about the spices though and sometimes even the best Indian restaurants have icky-flavored spinach, in my opinion. So, I'll make my own for Vegan Monday!
Palak Paneer Tofu
1 bunch spinach, chopped
1 red onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 Tbsp. curry (to taste)
2 C veggie broth
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
8 oz. paneer (or substitute vegan ricotta or cream cheese)
1 C cubed tofu or other "meat" substitute (maybe "chicken" cubes)
Coat large saucepan with olive oil. Brown onion and garlic. Add spinach, broth and nutritional yeast and stir. Add spices (feel free to do your curry to taste). Cook until spinach is wilted on medium-low. Add cheese and tofu and stir. Cook until cheese is melted/heated (paneer will stay in cubes, others will get melty).
Wow! I love it. It's the perfect spice seasoning for my paneer. A definite repeat. And so surprisingly simple
