"Delicious! Thanks for saving me when I couldn't figure out what to do with my spinach and tofu. :). I used 1 Tbsp of green curry paste instead of the red because my hubby doesn't like things too spicy, and it worked out perfectly."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 can coconut milk; (see Ingredient notes)
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro; chopped
1 teaspoon red curry paste; or to taste (see Ingredient notes)
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt; or to taste
14 ounces extra-firm tofu; preferably water-packed
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil; (I also like to use coconut)
1 bag baby spinach; ( or 4 cups fresh)
1 medium red bell pepper; sliced

Original recipe makes 4

Servings  

Preparation

To prepare sauce: Whisk coconut milk, cilantro, curry paste, brown sugar and salt in a small bowl.

To prepare tofu: Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Slice the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slabs. Coarsely crumble each slice into smaller, uneven pieces.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add tofu and cook in a single layer, without stirring, until the pieces begin to turn golden brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Then gently stir and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until all sides are golden brown.

Add spinach, red bell pepper and the curry sauce and cook, stirring, until the vegetables and spinach has wilted.

Creamy Thai curry sauce gives tofu a spicy, satisfying kick. You can adjust the amount of curry paste depending on your spice preference. Serve with brown basmati rice and lime wedges.

Notes:

Ingredient Tip

Look for reduced-fat coconut milk (labeled 'lite') in the Asian section of your market. Red curry paste is a convenient way to add heat and complexity to a recipe. Look for it in small jars in the Asian section of the supermarket.

Made this for Father's Day with rice noodles, it turned out great! We used extra red curry paste because my dad likes very spicy food. We also used more cilantro than recommended.

I added some stir-fry rice noodles & doubled the sauce recipe. Delicious!

This is a very simple, quick, and tasty meal. I mixed my own spices instead of buying the paste. Thank you for the recipe!
