Roasted pumpkin and tofu curry

Roasting a curry is one of the easiest ways to pack flavour into any dinner. The coconut dressing gives you that classic Asian flavour while adding a light freshness and is the perfect dressing for tofu: a great dairy-free source of calcium and meat-free protein. 

This dish is rich in vitamins B6, C and E, folate, iron, potassium and more; it’s useful for your heart, bones, skin, hair, nails and energy levels.

  4. Add the pumpkin, tomatoes and tofu to the bowl and toss to coat with the spice mixture.
