Thai Green Curry with Tofu and Vegetables

Author: Canadian Living

Commercial Thai curry paste is generally made with fish sauce or shrimp, ingredients not on the list of edibles for most vegetarians. If fish is part of your vegetarian diet, substitute fish sauce for the salt. A curry is a great place to add or substitute favourite vegetables; broccoli, mushrooms or squash would all be great.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (425 g) tofu
  • 8 oz Japanese eggplant
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup Green Curry Paste Recipe
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup green bean halved
  • 1 cup frozen whole okra thawed and halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Method

Drain tofu between paper towel–lined plates for 30 minutes; cut into 3/4-inch (2 cm) cubes. Cut eggplant into same-size cubes. Set aside.

In large shallow Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; fry curry paste and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in coconut milk and vegetable broth; bring to boil.

Add tofu, eggplant, green beans and remaining salt. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes or until eggplant is tender.

Add okra and coriander; simmer for 1 minute. Stir in lime juice.
