Meatless Monday – Green Curry Tofu

Thai Green Curry Tofu

Green Curry Tofu over Red Thai Rice

This was my first successful vegetarian meal and it has become my go to dish and a staple in our family. It’s a little bit spicy and so flavorful that even non-vegetarians (and non tofu eaters) seem to love it.

RECIPE
Ingredients:
1 globe eggplant or 2 Japanese eggplants
2 green zucchini,
1 cup brown muchrooms (Crimini or Portabella)
1 block extra firm organic tofu
2-3 Tablespoons cooking Oil (like Canola or Safflower)
2-3 Tablespoons green curry paste (use less for a milder taste)
3 cloves garlic(peeled and finely minced)
1 teaspoon fresh ginger (peeled and finely minced)
1 can coconut milk
1 Tablespoon Asian fish sauce
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1-2 Tablespoons white Sugar
1 cup vegetable broth (as needed)
Salt

Directions:
Cut tofu into 1/2 inch cubes, place on paper towels and let drain on an inverted board. Blot with paper towels. Dice eggplant into a 1/2 inch squares and sprinkle with salt to pull the excess water out. Dice zucchini. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil and brown tofu over medium high. Remove from pan to a large plate or bowl. Repeat with eggplant and zucchini (one at a time is best) cooking only for a few minutes as you don’t want them to overcook. Reduce heat and add garlic, ginger, green curry paste, fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar. Stir until smooth and bubbling. Add tofu and vegetables back in and simmer for a few minutes. Add vegetable broth as needed if the sauce is too thick. Serve over rice. I like long grained Red Rice from Thailand with this dish. A spinach and arugula salad with avocado, fennel and oranges in a light vinaigrette is a nice accompaniment.
