There are ways in, journeys to the center of life, through time; through air, matter, dream and thought. The ways are not always mapped or charted, but sometimes being lost, if there is such a thing, is the sweetest place to be. And always, in this search, a person might find that she is already there, at the center of the world. It may be a broken world, but it is glorious nonetheless.~ Linda Hogan~

This recipe for Coconut Curry Tofu with Turmeric & Shiitakes comes together in 20 minutes flat. Serve it over brown rice or grains for extra heartiness, or simply have it on its own, like a thick and hearty stew.

Fresh grated turmeric gives this its beautiful color, but if fresh turmeric is unavailable, ground turmeric will work fine too. Use the flavorful base to hold your favorite veggies.

The world where I live is covered in a thick blanket of snow. It’s beautiful. Icicles hand down off the eaves of houses, sparkling in the sunlight whilst snowflakes float gently by.  Everything is in slow motion. It is profoundly quiet. An invitation to come back to oneself and just be here for a moment, here, where it’s almost impossible not to feel love and gratitude for everything and everyone.

This soup is warming and soothing. Golden turmeric brightens even the darkest of days. Lemongrass perks up the soul, whispering of warm far off places.

A golden bowl of light in the middle of winter. So good for the soul…

  1. Even my carnivore husband agrees this recipe is exceptional. Added green beans and served over rice noodles. Thanks for inspiring us to cook more vegan meals!

  2. This looks amazing! Are there any alternatives to lemongrass? I order all of my groceries to be delivered and I can’t find lemongrass anywhere for some reason.

    1. That is frustrating, sorry. It is pretty important here. You could use Lemongrass paste- available on Amazon?

  3. It was delicious and I’ll do it again. Two questions please
    1 it’s called turmeric curry but has no curry on the. Ingredients
    2 it’s called vegetarian but I omitted the fish sauce Because it has anchovies which my vegetarian granddaughter will not eat
    One other thing I omitted cilantro because i hate the taste

  4. This is delicious! Followed recipe exact and added a handful of baby spinach. Thank you for sharing!

  5. delicious. i used dried turmeric for both parts and soy sauce instead of fish sauce and it was still very flavorful.

  6. The dish looks wonderful, though not vegan with the fish sauce added. I found a substitute for that in 2 parts broth to 1 part soy sauce. Maybe Nama Shoyu would be nice. Your thoughts?

  7. This may be my new favorite thing. So delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and had it over farro. I love tofu and cook for myself a lot, but when I make this for others (the tofu haters), shrimp would be good, yes? Or toss in some cooked, cubed chicken breast?
