Tofu with Thai Curry Sauce

I love this recipe, originally from The Eating Well Diabetes Cookbook (2005). I use it with pretty much any vegetables and it never fails me. I add carrots or sweet potatoes, when available. Colored peppers do add a lot of pizazz though, so I usually wait until pepper season. 


1 cup coconut milk

2 - 4 T fresh, chopped cilantro

1 tsp red curry paste

1/2 tsp brown sugar or maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt, or to taste

Tofu and Veggies:

14 ounces firm or extra firm tofu

2 tsp olive oil

4 cups greens (kale, chard, spinach, tatsoi, arugula, etc)

1 red, yellow or orange bell pepper, if available


Mix sauce ingredients, except cilantro, together in a bowl. 

Drain tofu and pat dry. Cut into 1/2 inch slabs and coarsely pull into pieces. Heat oil on high and toss tofu in until edges are browning. Add sauce ingredients and stir. Add veggies and cook until just soft. If I am adding carrots or sweet potatoes, I add them first and cook for 5 minutes before adding the greens. I add peppers last, as I like them lightly cooked. Throw cilantro on top. Serve with a wedge of lime over rice.
