Vegetable-tofu bake crumble

I’m on a diet.

Well, at least I’m trying to be on a diet. But it’s not really working. Well, take last night for example. Having lots of carrots left over, I figured I’d make a low-fat vegetable bake.

So I started chopping away, carrots, a bit of broccoli, cherry tomatoes, onions, and garlic. I then lightly stir fried the vegetables to give them a little flavour.

I then decided I’d make it a curry vegetable-tofu bake. So I added curry power mix and about a cup-and-a-half of water to the baking dish. And then topped it all off with tofu. Only problem, I had only what was a sliver of tofu left! So the baking dish looked a little bare on the top.

Anyway, I decided to make a topping to make it look a little nicer. A crumble topping. I had wholemeal flour, butter and sesame seeds. I mixed the sesame seeds and flour, added a bit of salt and rubbed in the butter, then whacked the mixture onto the bake and stuck the whole thing into the oven. And there you have it: a vegetable-tofu curry crumble!

So much for my creativity as Hubs said it was just a curry that I stuck in the oven!
Taste-wise, it was yum although the crumble topping was a little weird. Sort of like eating pastry with your curry.

Calorie-wise, all that butter didn’t help my diet!

Lots of vegetables!

Curry Powder mix:
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbs ground coriander
½ tsp chilli powder


  1. ger, u finally got settle down meh ? Still got time to cook ya ? *salute* yums, tofu n curry, yeehaa !:)

  2. Never seen such a dish before but again, leftovers always force us to be creative, ya? Maybe I can try that too! I would love to whack the flour mixture, rather than knead ;p

  3. i have too but sometimes i could not stop my temtation ate junk food, hehhehee

  4. Meltingwok: I think we're as settled as we're going to be in Frankfurt...for the next 3 months at least..then we're moving again!

    Tigerfish: I've never seen such a dish either! It was good for getting rid of leftovers.

    Lia: I'm a junk food junkie! hehe.

  5. So far, my creativity for making leftovers seem to be stuck at making fried rice only. I should be able to get more inspiration from you and Tigerfish!

  6. Yeah, speaking of diets. Today was hot so I had a hot fudge sundae, macadamia nut malt, orange phosphate, and taro ice cream. No, I didn't eat it all by myself. I shared with four other people. But still, not good!

  7. that tofu has baked so well. the color looks so nice. very healthy recipe.

  8. Wow... it looks so yummy and delicious.

    But I am still wondering.. you didn't actually use any tofu rite? Or did I miss out something?

  9. Sharmi:, the nice brown colour topping is the crumble topping - not the tofu.

    Velverse: I did use some tofu - but not enough so I had to add some "crumble" topping to make it all look nice!
