Keto Vegan Saag Paneer

5 ratings

This dish is wonderful with tofu instead of paneer and is another great way to get a nice dose of protein and iron into your diet. The tofu is drained and cut into small pieces, then pan-fried until golden brown. Then the spices are added and toasted together with the tofu for a wonderful flavor. Then cashew milk is added and simmered until thickened. I used a ¼ cup of avocado oil to fry to the tofu. This is not added into the ingredient list below for nutritional purposes because it is only used to fry the tofu. There is 1 teaspoon of avocado oil in the ingredient list to account for the oil that is left in the pan (read below in the instructions). Feel free to use cream for a vegetarian version.

          DELICIOUS! Serve over cauliflower rice and I added more garham marsalla and left out the cayenne pepper. Add more spinach...

            I did not enjoy the flavors, too much garam masala.
