  1. Drain the tofu. Fold a clean tea towel around it and place in a colander. Place something heavy, such as catering-size can of tomatoes on top of the towel. Place colander in sink to drain for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7.
  3. Cut tofu into one-inch cubes. Spread onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil, season with salt. Toss gently and spread out. Cook for about 15 minutes. You’re not trying to get these super crispy, just lightly golden (so they don’t turn to mush in the curry).
  4. In a large skillet over high heat, add the oil, then the onions. Season with a big pinch of kosher salt. Stir. Cover pan and immediately turn heat down to low. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until onions begin to take on some colour.
  5. Cut off tough bottom stems of cauliflowers. Remove only the very tough outer leaves. Cut the remaining leaves roughly and cut the cauliflowers into florets. Remove the leaves from the kale stems. Chop the leaves roughly.
  6. When the onions are ready, open the lid, allowing the water to drip back into the pan. Add the curry paste and spices and cook for a minute or two until the onion is evenly coated in the spices and the spices are beginning to toast.
  7. Add the coconut and 3 cups of water. Bring to a simmer. Add the brown sugar and a teaspoon of kosher salt. Add the cauliflower and the tofu and simmer at a good pace – turn the heat up if necessary – for about 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender. Check with a paring knife.
  8. Add the kale and stir to combine. Taste the broth. Add more salt and a squeeze of lime if necessary.
