1Add the onion, garlic, red chilli, curry powder, cumin, smoked paprika and tomato paste to a non-stick frying pan and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until softened. If you want to, you can use olive oil, coconut oil or vegan butter for sautéing.

3Add the tamari, tofu and veggie broth. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, until most of the liquid had evaporated. You can also use this time to cook your chosen pasta.
