Most beautiful afternoon snack in history!? Yesterday’s half eaten smoothie topped off with raw oats and a sprinkle of Groovy Granola. A nice little cool snack after a hot walk to an appt. and back!
Dinner tonight was a fabulous tofu curry feast!
You know, I think this was better than the 2x take outs I have had recently. Just could have used a bit more curry spice flavor.
Tofu Green Curry
Yield 4 Servings
Green curry paste makes this dinner taste authentic and ready in minutes!
- 1 block extra firm tofu, cubed
- 1 tbsp safflower or canola oil
- Salt + pepper to taste
- 1 can coconut milk, lite or regular
- 2-3 tbsp Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste
- 4 cups mixed vegetables (we used eggplant and okra)
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped basil (or a sprinkle of dried)
- 2-3 cups brown rice
- Add oil to a skillet and add tofu cubes - allow to brown for about 8 minutes and then flip to other side. Season with salt and pepper.
- Pour coconut milk into a medium pot and add curry paste. Whisk to combine. Heat to medium high for about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prep all veggies.
- Add veggies to coconut broth and continue to heat until veggies are cooked through, while tofu continues to brown.
- When veggies are tender and tofu is brown, combine all in skillet and sprinkle on basil and any additional salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour portions over cooked brown rice.
The base was coconut milk + Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste heated until they were well mixed and hot.
Then we added a bunch of our garden veggies to thicken and soften in the broth
On the side, we pan-seared a block of plain Twin Oaks Tofu in safflower oil until it was nice and brown and stirred it all together with some fresh basil at the last minute. Served over leftover brown rice!
We need to eat tofu more – I absolutely love it!
Halfway through dinner we decided to pay a visit to Kohr Bros and thus, I knew I wouldn’t have any room for custard if I finished this whole dinner. So I saved half for tomorrow night (when I actually need a packed dinner when going from one thing to another). Good call because I was still full!
Karen was just too intrigued to not get custard tonight after I kept talking about it at last night’s dinner (when we were all too stuffed to fit any)
We went to the location just passed Pantops – which was a much nicer drive from our house!
I was shocked to find a cone was only $2.75. Compare that to about $4.30 for a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s and I think about $3.30 for Chaps. Frozen yogurt – who knows with those toppings! So this was a great deal.
I did end up getting the classic orange sherbet (always and forever pronounced sheRbeRt!) with vanilla swirl – and sprinkles on top just for you mom!
Currently listening to the Independence Day theme song on Pandora Film Scores station – best movie song EVER!!!!!!!!!
I started On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves last night. It’s like LOST meets Island of the Blue Dolphins – good so far and kept me awake and entertained for over an hour in bed last night!
