Andrea Nguyen's Saag Soy Paneer
Tofu isn't necessarily one of the mainstays of the Indian pantry but soy paneer as it's known in India does make its way into quite a few dishes, including this Saag Soy Paneer, adapted from Andrea Nguyen's Asian Tofu. The tofu here stands in as a vegan variation of traditional paneer, a squeaky, mild fresh cow's milk cheese. To mimic the texture and salty flavors, Nguyen soaks the tofu in salted water before drying and pan frying it.
