Coconut Curry Tofu with Veggies, Vegan!

Aloha world.

Since I imagine you like this pondering over the tofu section at the grocery store, similar to how I was before this guide:

Plato, the great philosopher

I found this guide to tofu if you ever questioned which firmness to buy at the grocery store:

This has been my favorite vegan recipe so far! 

Whatdoyaneed?

1 can of UNSWEETENED light coconut milk

1 package of extra firm tofu, drain and cubed

2 “mississippis” of oil (either peanut, olive, etc) drizzled around the pan

1 small onion, chopped

minced garlic

2 tsps of curry powder aka take the lid off and just eyeball how much you want

chop up cilantro and add one tight fistful

seasonings: garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne, turmeric

Veggies: anything youuuu want! I did 1 yellow bell pepper and brocolli

Howdoyoucookit?

Simmer, mhmm smells so good!

Begin by heating the large sauce pan on medium heat putting the oil, garlic and onion in and allowing it to simmer. Next add the can of coconut milk.  YUM.  Every time I say coconut I think of the song “put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up, she put the lime in the coconut called the doctor woke him up said DOCTOR is there nothing I can take, DOCTOR to relieve my belly ache”…not even sure if those are the right lyrics that’s like a decade old song…and now you all just witness my stream of conciousness.

Just ignore the can of bud light in the corner...not mine lol

ANYWAYS.

Allow for the mixture to bubble. Add as many spices as you want. I added the curry and tumeric, salt and cayenne–I like it spicy so I added some hot pepper sesame oil too!

Spice it up!

Add the veggies and put down to a med-low heat and cover. Stir every couple of minutes or so with a whisk or wooden spoon.

Why is tofu so weird looking?

Steam the veggies by covering with a lid….for about 6-8 minutes

steam it up baby!

Taste to make sure it is done before removing it from the stove! Aka it’s hot enough and tastes so good and doesn’t need additional seasonings.

I served it with organic Quinoa! THIS WAS SO GOOD. Seriously. Like a flavorful travel experience in my mouth.

So here’s to happy and healthy eating! Did you remember the fitness challenge of the week? Always use the stairs! Have you been able to defeat that challenge so far? Keep it up!!!!

xoxo,
