How to make it

  • for the most part, stir this well while cooking. it lets one cook at a higher heat without worrying about burning anything. just stir every couple of minutes or lower temp and stir less often but for longer.
  • cook collard leaves with some water for about 15 min, (covered, so they don't dry out. dry out=bad) until tender. while its cooking, its good time to prep the other ingredients.
  • when done, put into a bowl off to the side.
  • add 1/2 of the oil to the pot, heat, add diced onions.
  • When almost tender, add garlic.
  • cook for a couple of minutes.
  • add collard greens, kelp, tomatoes.
  • cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • add spinach, stir well, cover and leave sitting for 5 mins.
  • add cayenne pepper and garam masala.
  • put mixture in blender and blend some, leaving some texture.
  • gradually add the olive oil at this point (kind of like a pesto). add the black pepper at the end, mixing (while still very hot) with the tofu.
  • enjoy :D
  • SUBSTITUTIONS: no collards=all spinach. no kelp? leave it out.

    Thanks for sharing that one.

    Just one thought for those who are vegetarians (like myself) and not vegan: paneer is a vegetarian acceptable cheese, since it is not made with rennet - most cheeses aren't strictly vegetarian, eh.

    So, if you can obtain paneer (you can even make it - I get mine as frozen cubes from a middle-eastern store!), you can go with that.

    i found it at whole foods. its good to look in the asian secton. i use this brand:

    if you can't find it in a health or quality grocery store near you, there's always amazon :)

    kelp is loaded with vitamins. i added it because i don't use iodized salt. kelp has a very high amount of natural iodine in it and other great minerals.
