    blucoat's Note:

    This is a delicious and healthier version of saag paneer (palak paneer) that uses tofu rather than cheese. The Indian spices lend a lot of flavour to the tofu. From "EatingWell Magazine".

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut tofu into thirds lengthwise and eighths crosswise. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring gently every 2 to 3 minutes, until browned on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan and reduce heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, ginger and mustard seeds and cook until the onion is translucent, 4 to 6 minutes. Add spinach in batches small enough to fit in the pan and cook, stirring frequently, until all the spinach has been added and has wilted, 4 to 6 minutes more.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, combine yogurt, curry powder, cumin and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add to the pan along with the tofu and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

      YUM! I did not use all of the spinach, because I am not a huge fan (though I am trying to be!). I used about 1/2 a pound. I also bought cubed tofu. This took a little longer to brown, but still worked really well. This was so simple and turned out amazing! Even my meat-loving husband liked this dish. Thanks!

      Did not taste like Saag at all. The tofu gave it a really weird flavour.

      LOVE THIS! Wonderful flavor and so easy to make. I used a low-fat traditional greek yogurt for the sauce and olive oil in place of the canola oil. Thank you for sharing!
