First BBQ of the Season

J and i bought a fun charcoal BBQ with an added smoker feature recently. We were excited to test it out and did so over the weekend, when the weather was still teasing us with warm hints of summer. I was hungry for something Indian and J wanted to grill our cauliflower, so i thought we could try making a Tandoori Cauliflower recipe that i found on-line. I just used vegan plain yoghurt and readymade tandoori spice mix and it was the easiest tandoori dish to make. And, very tasty i might add. The recipe was pretty straightforward otherwise, and the BBQ worked well, though i'm sure an actual tandoori overn is that much better and more authentic.I also made a lovely Saag Paneer curry (spinach and cheese) where i used Sunergia's Indian Masala Tofu as the paneer. It was lovely. For this dish, i followed a recipe from an old vegetarian Indian cookbook i had. Because i had some leftover tandoori sauce, i incorporated that in too. I'm sure you can find many recipes on line for this dish, but i highly recommend finding this great tofu to use instead of paneer as well as basic tofu. It has a great combination of spices as well as texture that added to the curry in ways regular tofu doesn't.

To compliment the dish, we grilled some asparagus on the BBQ too. Of course, we made Basmati rice to complete the meal too.

Krissy, i bought it at Whole Foods when we went there to treat ourselves. But, i've seen the line of cheese and tofus at Essence of Life in Kensington, and other health food stores, like The Sweet Potato in our neighbourhood. Hope that helps!
