– While pressing the tofu preheat the oven. Slice the pressed/drained tofu into cubes and place on a parchment lined sheet pan. Bake until golden and slightly puffy. Set aside.


– In a Dutch oven, add the oil and heat until it shimmers and add the onion. Turn the heat down and stir fry until the onions begin to soften. – Stir in the mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms soften and turn a darker shade of brown.


– To the mushroom mixture, add the garlic, ginger, chili flakes and red curry paste. Stir.


– Deglaze the pan with veggie broth. Stir in the coconut milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, Tamari and tofu. Simmer.


– Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice. Taste for seasoning adjustment. If more salty is desired, add a bit of Tamari. Sweeter? Add a bit of maple syrup/brown sugar.


– Ladle into bowls and top with desired toppings: spinach or shredded purple cabbage, fresh herbs, toasted pumpkin seeds or cashews. Share with Jasmine rice, lime wedges, additional Tamari and/or Sriracha.
