  3. Slice the tofu into ábout 6 slices (see photos in post ábove for reference). Now, rip eách slice into medium-lárge pieces. You cán álso simply cut them into cubes, if you prefer, but ripping gives the tofu á greát texture for this dish.

  5. While the tofu bákes, prepáre the sáuce: Melt the 2 táblespoons of vegán butter in á lárge pán over medium-high heát. Sáute the onion for 3-4 minutes in the butter, then ádd the ginger ánd gárlic ánd cook for 1 more minute. Ádd the spices, sált, tomáto páste ánd coconut milk. Stir until smooth ánd combined, then simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  6. When the tofu is done báking, ádd it to the sáuce ánd stir to coát the pieces. Serve over rice with Eásy Vegán Náán. Gárnish with chopped fresh cilántro. Enjoy!
