Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 large onions sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 16 ounce package extra firm tofu chopped into ~1 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 Small zucchini cubed
  • 1 cup coconut milk unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Cilantro for garnish

Instructions
 

  • In a large dutch oven or heavy bottom pot, heat the coconut oil over low heat. Add the garlic and 2/3 of the chopped onions, cover pot with lid, and sautee on low for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Onions should become soft and tender.
  • Add the tofu to the dutch oven, along with the garam masala, turmeric, coriander, and garlic salt. Stir well to combine and allow the tofu to get coated in the spices. Sautee tofu for 3-4 minutes in the onions and spices.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, Vegetable stock, bell pepper, zucchini, and the remaining 1/3 of the chopped onions. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low so the chicken is simmering. Cover with a lid and cook for 30 minutes until chicken is cooked all way through, and Vegetables are tender.
  • Remove pot from heat and stir in the coconut milk to make a thick and creamy sauce. Add fresh pepper, and cilantro for garnish.  Serve over rice with garlic naan bread.
