Cook potatoes
  • Cut potato into 1-inch pieces.
  • Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt (use same for 4 ppl) and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a medium pot.
  • Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Simmer uncovered until fork-tender, 10-12 min.
  • Drain potatoes in a colander.
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice green onions.
  • Pat tofu dry with paper towels, then cut into 1-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper.
Start stew
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • When the pot is hot, add 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) butter, then swirl until melted.
  • Add tofu. Pan-fry, turning tofu cubes occasionally, until crispy and golden-brown all over, 6-7 min. (TIP: For 4 ppl, cook in 2 batches, using 1 tbsp oil per batch!)
  • Add mirepoix. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies soften slightly, 1-2 min.
  • Sprinkle Cream Sauce Spice Blend into the pot.
  • Cook, stirring often, until tofu and veggies are coated, 30 sec.
Finish stew
  • Stir 1 cup (1 2/3 cups) water and broth concentrate into the pot with tofu and veggies. Bring to a boil over high.
  • Once stew is boiling, add peas, then reduce heat to medium.
  • Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender. (NOTE: Stew will be on the thin side.)
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Make brown butter
  • Meanwhile, while potatoes drain in the colander, carefully wipe dry the medium pot (from step 1), then reheat over medium.
  • When the pot is hot, add 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) butter, then swirl until butter is golden-brown and stops foaming, 1-2 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on butter so it doesn't burn!)
  • Add green onions, then remove from heat. Stir until softened slightly, 30 sec.
Finish and serve
  • Return potatoes to the pot with brown butter and green onions.
  • Add 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) milk, then roughly mash potatoes. (NOTE: 'Smashed' potatoes will still have a few chunks!)
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Divide mash between bowls. Top with tofu stew.
Modularity step (under step 2)

If you've opted to get tofu, prepare it the same way as the chicken

Modularity step (under step 3)

When the pot is hot, add tofu. Pan-fry, turning occasionally, until tofu cubes are crispy and golden-brown all over, 6-7 min. (TIP: For 4 ppl, cook in 2 batches, using 1 tbsp oil per batch!) Follow the rest of the recipe as written.
