Cashew Stew with Tofu and Kale

We love a good hearty dish here at Karma and this savory, creamy, delicious stew is the perfect way to curl up on a crisp fall day. We love the healthy plant proteins from our cashews and tofu and, the fiber from leafy kale, and the zestiness you get from sriracha and garam masala. Serve it on a bed of rice, noodles, or on its own.
