EASY COCONUT CURRY WITH TOFU
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
1 block firm tofu, cut into squares
4 tsp olive oil, divided
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup kale (packed), destemmed and chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp chili flakes (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup canned full fat coconut milk (plus more if needed)
1/4 cup dry split red lentils (optional for a thicker curry)
4 cups of cooked rice
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Heat 2 tsp of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Brown the tofu, stirring frequently until it's evenly golden-brown. Set aside.
In the same skillet, heat 1 tsp of oil and sauté the onion and vegetables (except the kale) until tender. Set aside.
Add another 1 tsp of oil to the skillet and add the garlic, cumin, coriander, turmeric, chili flakes (if using), and salt. Cook for about 1 minute or until flagrant.
Add the vegetable broth, coconut milk, tofu, cooked vegetables and kale.
If using split red lentils, add those in now.
Bring to a simmer and let cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with white rice and enjoy!
