Coconut Curry with Tofu & Brown Rice


Ingredients :

  • 1 block firm tofu, chopped into squares
  • 4 tsp canola or olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup kale (packed), destemmed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots (about 2 medium carrots), chopped
  • 1/2 cup green and/or red pepper (about 1 pepper), chopped
  • 1 cup zucchini, quartered and sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes (optional)
  • 1 tbsp chile garlic sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup dry red lentils, split (optional)
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh basil, finely chopped
  • juice of 1/4 lime
  • 4 cups of cooked brown rice (or more)

Instructions :

  1. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Brown the tofu, stirring frequently until it’s evenly golden-brown. Set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, heat 1 tsp oil and sauté the onion and vegetables (minus the kale) until they’re just barely tender. Set aside.
  3. Add another 1 tsp of oil to the skillet and add the garlic, cumin, coriander, turmeric, chili flakes (optional), chile garlic sauce, and salt. Cook for about 1 minute or until garlic is translucent.
  4. Add the vegetable broth, coconut milk, tofu, veggies, and kale.
  5. If you prefer a curry with plenty of broth simply simmer the curry for 5-10 minutes. If you’d prefer a thicker curry with less broth add 1/4 cup of split red lentils before simmering for 5-10 minutes.
  6. After simmering add the lime juice and basil. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Let sit for 3-5 minutes before serving with brown rice.
