Vadouvan French Tofu Curry
This was a little experiment that turned out pretty good. My Mom made a really good french chicken curry that she put in crepes. We had a crepe maker…did you have one? They were a “thing” back in the 70’s. I can remember helping her make them in our kitchen back in Annandale, Va. Anyway, I thought why not substitute tofu for the chicken. I know tofu doesn’t sound good but it does take on the flavor of the spices, etc so well you forget you’re eating it and its such a great source of plant based protein and fiber. Give it a try, you might end up liking it!
