Red Tofu Curry

This simple curry is comforting and gently spiced. The sweet, mild flavors of this dish with its creamy coconut milk sauce make it a great “beginner’s curry.” If you’re not sure you love curry, give this one a try. You can find even more great recipes from Toni’s new cookbook here: bit.ly/EasyVeganSlowCooker
