  • Summary

    There's no cheese in this "paneer" recipe, but there are perfectly seasoned, super crispy, cheesy-flavored blocks of tofu. Take some time to press and marinate the tofu in advance—the resulting texture is absolutely worthwhile. The green sauce may darken over time, but leftovers will taste even better on the second day, after the flavors and spices have had some time to mingle. To make your own cashew cream to use in the recipe, you can follow these instructions: https://food52.com/recipes/20679-classic-cashew-cream
