This Tofu & Lentil Pumpkin Curry is healthy, flavor-packed and hearty. Ready in just 30 minutes and layered with so many great flavors, this is going to be on your regular rotation during the colder months.

Step One: Prep the Ingredients

There aren’t too many steps to this one. It is kind of a dump and simmer type of recipe. But be sure to prep the tofu by pressing it for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the tofu to soak up so many of those tasty flavors in the broth.

Here is everything you need for this recipe:

Step Two: Simmer

To get this going, heat the sesame oil in a stock pot. Add the garlic, ginger, onion and dry seasonings. Cook down for 2-3 minutes.

Pour in the broth, coconut milk, pumpkin, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil, lower heat and add the lentils and tofu. Simmer, stirring regularly for 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

Step Three: Serve

And that is it! This is ready to be served. Obviously, you can let it simmer longer for a more intense flavor. But if you are short on time, don’t worry it will already taste amazing.

I like to serve this over rice and add a few toppings. I added, lime wedges, cilantro and jalapeño slices to mine.

This curry is incredibly simple, but so, so tasty. If you are looking for comfort in a bowl, then you need to give this one a try!
