"OK, I made some changes. Big changes. First of all, I believe tofu should be introduced much earlier in the recipe; I added it after adding the tomatoes. Adding it earlier gives it a chance to take on the flavor of the spices and tastes not unlike paneer (which would be a great substitute for non-vegans}. I wasn't sure if this recipe was supposed to be Indian or Thai (or neither) inspired, so I went with Indian, adding 1 teaspoon cumin seed, 1 teaspoon ground smoked coriander, and 1 teaspoon of Garam Masala. Instead of the plum tomatoes, I used fire roasted diced tomatoes because that's what I had on hand and I put the spinach in the food processor until it was almost like pesto, as the Indians often do. Finally, I added fresh cilantro at the very end. The bottom line is, if you're going to use bland ingredients such as eggplant and tofu, you have to compensate with bold spices and herbs. I would encourage shelby15 to give this another try using more seasoning."
