For the Curry Sauce
For the Bowl
In a medium bowl, cover cashews with water and soak for about 2 hours.
After soaking, drain the cashews and add to your food processor or Vitamix. Next, add your lime juice, garlic, curry powder, coconut milk, pepper flakes, and some salt along with 1/2 cup of coconut cashewmilk and blend until the mixture is very smooth and creamy. Keep adding Coconut Cashew Oat Plant Milk until you reach a consistency you like.
Curry Bowl Assembly:
Press tofu cubes to remove extra moisture. Toss your tofu in oil, soy sauce and sprinkle with cornstarch. Bake in 350 oven until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
Sauté your favorite seasonal or frozen veggies like sugar snap peas, carrots, sweet onion, Kabocha squash or cauliflower in neutral oil such as grapeseed or canola.
Once the veggies are cooked to almost al dente, stir in your curry sauce and simmer for an additional 3-5 minutes on low. Add tofu on top.
Serve with rice or quinoa, and garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.
