An easy tofu and vegetable curry that’s appropriate for baby led weaning and the whole family.
There are certain flavors that we’ve found that Luca loves (and doesn’t love, for that matter) and curry is one of the ones he loves!
So naturally, I’ve tried to make as many curry-seasoned foods for Luca as possible without going overboard. Everything in moderation!
This easy Tofu and Vegetable Curry was a hit with Luca – he loved picking up the vegetables (they’re just tender enough!) and eating them.
Most importantly, he loved the quinoa at the bottom of the bowl (we’re loving this Mini Bowl by EZPZ.) I preloaded it for him on a NumNum GOOtensil and he ate a whole bowlful!
We loved this recipe as parents – we just stirred in a little salt after serving Luca’s!

- Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Once oil melts, add garlic and ginger and stir for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the bell peppers, onions, green beans, zucchini, and stir well. Let cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables begin to turn tender. Season with curry powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Add the coconut milk and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender and curry thickens.
