Golden curried tofu

Gar! I can't seem to turn this IPhone photo right side up! I made Golden Curry last night after deciding I've had enough delivery and takeout to last me until tomorrow a lifetime. I couldn't understand all the foreign language on the packaging but I managed to interpret the 3 photos on the back. Saute veggies, add 1400 ml water (almost 6 cups), add curry blocks, stir and simmer until thickened.
Don't be afraid of the BIG. BAD. BLOCK. of BROWN
I peeled 4 potatoes, cut into small chunks, and boiled until just about softened.
I sauteed my veggies: zucchini, red onions, mushrooms in some minced garlic and EVOO.
added just under 6 cups of water and waited until it boiled to add the curry blocks. I made sure to constantly stir the pot so that the chunks of curry had a chance to melt evenly.
I simmered the curry for about 20 minutes, added in some blocks of firm silken tofu, and lastly mixed in the softened potatoes.
I made myself a small plate over brown rice while waiting for T to get home. It was delicious and really simple to make!! Next time I think I'll add some other protein, like beef  but tonight, tofu was the only thing I had in the house.
