Curried tofu with steamed veggies and rice for a spicy entree on Meatless Monday

Curried tofu is like super tofu -- the "bland" flavor that many people find dull is eliminated with an explosion of spices. (Especially if you toast the cumin seeds yourself and grind them -- yum.) This recipe is adapted from Moosewood New Classics; we're cutting down slightly on the tofu and adding steamed vegetables to help the curry stretch to serve a few more people. The recipe in the book says it serves three; we could feed five to six people with our bounty, especially when the curried tofu is put on top of long-grain brown rice.
