Mango Coconut Tofu Curry (Vegan)

Is there any such thing as too many mangoes? I don’t think so. Evidently, I’ve been in love with Mangoes all through my life and my utter affection towards them motivates me to go above and beyond to create fresh, new recipes using them. And because mangoes are in season nowadays, I created this Mango Coconut Tofu curry which not only is super easy to make but is also very light, completely dairy free and delicious.

Despite its rich, decadent flavours and texture, this Mango Coconut Tofu Curry is very light on the stomach. That being said, it has a very pleasant sweet and savoury taste with a creamy texture, thanks to the addition of coconut milk. Moreover, serve it with rice in the summer for lunch or dinner and you are definitely in for a treat.

Additionally, If you like this Mango Coconut Tofu Curry recipe, I am happy to let you know that I have many other Mango recipes on my blog. Some of my favourites are Vegan Mango Salsa, Mango Cardamom Cream Popsicles, Virgin Mango Mojito. Also, if you make any of my recipes, I’d love to see your beautiful creations.
