This curry-spiced hash can span the dayparts, serving as a side or main dish at breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Potatoes add heartiness, spinach and tofu boost nutrition, and pimientos, red onion and jalapenos contribute contrasting color and flavor.

Ingredients

10 lb. firm tofu, diced
2 oz. curry powder, divided
Vegetable oil for frying
1 lb. jalapeno peppers
1 lb. cornstarch
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
5 lb. red onion, diced
1/2 lb. garlic cloves, chopped
10 lb. russet potatoes, steamed and diced
1/2 oz. cayenne pepper
Pinch dried thyme
5 lb. converted brown rice, cooked
5 lb. fresh spinach, julienned
2 lb. canned pimientos, drained
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Steps

  1. Sprinkle tofu with half the curry powder; steam 2 to 3 minutes and set aside.
