The tofu cubes are then baked in the oven and mixed with cooked basmati rice. Topped with fresh cilantro leaves, this Indian-inspired dish is the perfect way to tantalize your taste buds.
To make this delicious lunch, start by preheating your oven to 400°F. Cut the block of extra-firm tofu into cubes and place in a bowl. In the same bowl, add the plain yogurt, olive oil, garam masala, cumin, turmeric powder, ground coriander, minced garlic, grated ginger, and diced onion. Mix everything together until the tofu is evenly coated. Spread the tofu cubes onto a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
While the tofu is baking, cook the basmati rice in a skillet according to the package instructions. Once the tofu is done baking, add it to the cooked rice and mix together. Serve the Indian Tofu Lunch in a bowl and top with fresh cilantro leaves.
The combination of extra-firm tofu, yogurt, olive oil, and spices creates a great base for the dish. Cooking the basmati rice in a skillet with the baked tofu cubes gives it a nice crunch, and topping it off with fresh cilantro leaves adds the perfect finishing touch.
