Butter chicken is a popular Indian dish, often found in curry houses. Here are some plant-based versions. If you use vegan butter, ensure you choose a brand that’s free from palm oil. Keep these meals away from pets, as they contain pet-toxic ingredients like faux meats, onion etc.
This rich and creamy vegan butter tofu (Planted and Picked) is the ideal alternative to vegan butter chicken. The tofu is marinated in a tasty spicy yogurt sauce, with lemon juice. Then a spice blend is made, before making the butter tofu. Then bring everything together with rice and green veggies. You can make this recipe ahead of time, and reheat if wished.
Tofu can be confusing for the newbie. Basically, there are two types. Firm tofu is cut into chunks and used in savoury recipes. Silken tofu looks like custard and pours out of the pack, to make desserts. Always choose organic tofu, to protect the rainforests.
Vegan Butter Chicken (So Vegan) uses plant-based cream and oyster mushrooms, for an authentic version of this popular dish.
