  • Author: Katie Webster

A favorite vegan entree that I have been making for years: curried couscous recipe with roasted red pepper, peas and baked organic tofu. Whole-grain


  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Curry powder or Garam Masala
  • 2 ½ cups vegetable broth, such as Imagine No Chicken
  • 1 7.6-ounce box whole-wheat couscous
  • 1 6-ounce package organic baked tofu, diced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Arrange oven rack in upper third of the oven and set to broil. Place pepper on a broiler pan and broil, turning occasionally until the skin is charred and blistered all over, 12-17 minutes.
  2. Place pepper in a bowl and cover with foil or a plate to allow the pepper to steam and cool, about 10 minutes. Peel charred skin off pepper. Core, seed and chop pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Add garlic and curry or garam masala and cook, stirring until fragrant 30 to 90 seconds. Add broth, cover and bring to a boil.
  4. Add couscous, tofu, peas and the roasted red pepper to the saucepan and return to a simmer. Cover and remove from the heat. Let sit 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. Serve sprinkled with parsley if desired.


Curry Powder

The type of curry powder you choose will really change the nature of the recipe. I used Teeny Tiny Spice Co. British Curry. I also love to make it with Garam Masala or Tandori Masala too which are both sweet and spicy. Or you can choose a hotter Madras curry powder if you like spicy curry.
