Winter Green Vegetable and Tofu Curry

“The spices in this dish are wonderful for reducing inflammation, boosting the immune system and promoting good circulation,” says cook and nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson.

“Tofu is a great plant-based protein, full of iron and calcium. The ginger is a wonderful digestive aid. The vegetables are full of fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K and have powerful antioxidant properties.”

You’ll need:
(Serves 4)

  • 1 block of firm tofu – cubed
  • 2tsp curry powder mild
  • 1tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2tsp ground coriander
  • 2tsp salt
  • 1/2tsp coconut sugar
  • 1tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 bag of Strong Roots Winter Green Vegetables
  • 1 onion
  • 1 small bunch of coriander
  • Coconut oil


1. Drain the tofu and squeeze carefully with hands or two chopping boards to get out any excess water.

2. In a small bowl combine the curry powder, turmeric, coriander, ginger, salt and sugar. Toss to combine.

3. Add some coconut oil to a nonstick pan, add the onion and garlic and soften.

4. Add tofu and spices and fry off for a further five mins. Add coconut milk and vegetable stock.

5. Add the Strong Roots Winter Green Vegetables and mix through. Cook for a further five minutes. Serve with coriander. (Strong Roots is available at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Wholefoods and Ocado.)
