Tofu with Thai Curry Sauce

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.

Serves 4

Prep Time 5 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup “lite” coconut milk, (see Ingredient notes)
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 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
  • 4 cups baby spinach, (6 ounces)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced (1 1/2 cups)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

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

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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, 5 to 7 minutes more.

Step 4

Add spinach, bell pepper and the curry sauce and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just cooked, 1 to 2 minutes more.
