A light coconut curry with lots of fresh veggies. Originally a chicken curry recipe, my friend Janna modified it for her veggie friends, passed it along to us, and then I modified it again to come up with this one. Enjoy!
14 oz unsweetened coconut milk
3 tbsp green curry paste
1/2 package of tofu
1 red pepper
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tsps brown sugar
3/4 cup fresh basil
1/2-1 tsp chili flakes or fresh chili pepper
Basmati or Jasmine rice
- Heat coconut milk and whisk in curry paste until smooth.
- Add tofu (you can pre-fry the tofu first if you like it a bit cruncy) & veggies, lime juice & brown sugar.
- Simmer until veggies are tender.
- Stir in basil and chilies. Serve over rice.
