Easy Tofu and Green Pea Curry

A while ago I posted a link to a recipe similar to this. The way I make it is different enough, though, that I'm going to post my own version instead. This is very quick to make. No garlic or onions to chop!

Easy Tofu and Green Pea Curry

14-oz package firm or extra firm tofu
2 T canola oil
1 t cumin
1 - 2 inch piece fresh ginger, sliced thin (or 2 t powdered ginger)
1 t salt, or to taste
dash or two of cayenne pepper
2 t curry powder
1 t turmeric
28 oz can chopped tomatoes (or equivalent Pomi brand boxed tomatoes, or 3 c fresh)
1 lb frozen peas

If you have time, freeze tofu in its package the night before, then put in fridge in the morning to thaw.

Press the water out of the tofu. Slice into cubes.

Heat oil in pan. Add cumin, ginger, salt, cayenne, curry powder and turmeric, and saute for half a minute, until fragrant. Add tofu and brown it. (Or don't brown, if you don't have time.) Add tomatoes and cook a few minutes. Taste to see if you want more spices. Add peas and cook a few minutes more. Serve over rice.
