Nut Free Tofu Flax Curry is a unique and absolutely amazing entree. I bet you haven’t eaten anything like this before. Yes, you got it right, the gravy base of this entree is made from ground flax seeds, that is, whole ground flax meal. I know it’s simply unimaginable. Well, that’s what my blog is all about. I create unimaginable recipes for you to try it and make it real.
Lately, if you have been following my blog I have posted few recipes with flax meals. Okay! I get it!!! Well, yes not few but many. Okay again I get it!!! Most of my recent recipes involve flax meal. Also, to give you a heads up, few of my upcoming recipes will again involve lots of flax meals. So, I may say, that I am in a mood of exploring the endless limits of this nutritious seeds. I never knew flax meals could be so versatile and could be used in such diverse recipes. Especially, it was amazing how it turned out in this savory entrée that is absolutely nut free yet healthy, nutritious, low in calories and tastes heavenly.
Recently, I am noticing tofu has gained lot of controversies and a lot of myth has cropped up around it. Well, I always use organic tofu in my recipes that are NON – GMO. Also many a times I use homemade tofu in my recipes. Tofu is extremely high in protein and is also a great source of calcium. There are many believes around tofu but personally I think tofu is the most versatile and extremely cook friendly for a plant based diet. I personally, love tofu and it still is my comfort food inspite of all the controversies flowing around.
So, talking about flax meal, it’s extremely high in omega -3 fatty acids and contains all the good fats needed by our body. It is also a good source of protein and fiber along with some cancer fighting properties. Flax seeds/ground flax meals also helps in weight loss and promotes good digestive health. Now, you can imagine why I love flax meal. Also, I love its chewy and fiber texture.
Coming back to my recipe, firstly, I sautéed some garlic, ginger powder and white onions in olive oil. (To make it oil free you may use vegetable broth instead of oil). Thereafter, I flavored it with cinnamon powder and cardamom powder. Afterwards, I added whole ground flax meal along with some water. Lastly, I added tofu along with some more seasonings. Finally, I finished this entrée with hemp milk.
WHOA! It’s unbelievable to have loads of nutrition and health in just one plate.
I am , myself amazed at the end result of this Nut free Tofu Flax Curry. I would highly recommend to first trying it yourself before forming any opinion about the combination of ingredients in this entree 🙂
