Daily Vegan Lunch for 24 May, 2013: Tofu Palak Paneer



8 cups fresh spinach or greens (I used an organic baby kale mix)
1.5 cups onion, chopped
1.5 cups firm or extra firm tofu, cut into cubes
2 Tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Cayenne pepper, to taste
2 Tablespoons water
1 cup soy yogurt

1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 tablespoon additional oil

Rice, to serve

Sauté onion in oil in a large pan on medium heat until translucent. Add spices and garlic, sauté briefly, about 30 seconds. Add greens and water and cover, periodically stirring until greens wilt, about 2 minutes. Transfer greens to a blender. Add soy yogurt and blend until fairly smooth. Meanwhile, sprinkle tofu with garlic powder. Fry tofu in oil on medium heat until heated through, add spinach mixture. Add the pureed greens to pan. Salt to taste. Serve with rice and toasted pita breads or naan.
