  1. I love this recipe!! Palak penear is one of my favorites and I’ve been missing it since I cut dairy from my diet a few years ago. I’ve made it a few times with tofu, but this recipe using is slow cooker is so much easier. Yay! The only change I made was using my own marinated tofu in place of the baked tofu. Baked tofu is so expensive and I can never bring myself to buy it. I used one block Trader Joe’s supper firm tofu marinated in a mix of soy sauce, brown mustard, apple cider vinegar, and tamarind paste. I let it marinate while the other ingredients were cooking. Easy and delish, and it saved me about $4.
