Butter Masala

A vegetarian dish with classic Indian flavors, this Butter Masala is filled with nutritious proteins such as tofu, tempeh and chickpeas, all bathed in a velvety smooth gravy. While it is rich and creamy, it also has a bright and tangy note from the tomatoes used to make the gravy. For added health benefits and texture, serve with steamed broccoli and black rice, which is rich in antioxidants and adds a mild nutty flavor to the dish.
