This is one of my favorite dishes to make during the week. It’s quick to make, it’s delicious and it’s got great macros.

I encourage you to make it once and then play around with the spices and the ingredients! It’s hard to go wrong

This savoury delicious vegan dish is quick and easy to make. And the macros are quite good.

  • 1 red onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 tomato can 400g
  • 1 block of tofu 250g
  • 1 can of chickpeas 400g
  • 1 can of lentils 200g
  • 8 g olive oil


  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Dice the onion, peel and press the garlic and cut the zucchini in half length wise and then into slices of about 1-2mm thick
  • Preheat a pan with the olive oil on it. Meanwhile cut the tofu into roughly 1cm chunks and throw it in when the pan is hot
  • After 5 min, stir the tofu a bit, make a spot in the middle of it and add the onion. Let it cook for another 3-5 min
  • When the onion is slightly cooked, make a spot in the middle of it and add the garlic and cook for another minute
  • Add the zucchini, mix everything and let cook for another 3 min
  • Add the rest of the ingredients along with the spices and half a cup of water and let it simmer on low heat with a lid on. Stir every once in a while
  • Once you reached the desired consistency (after about 5-10 min), remove from the stove. I like to have it a bit more watery so that I can dip some bread in it
  • You can plate it with some rice, quinoa, chapati, bread or just as is.
