Look for Thai yellow curry paste in Asian grocery stores or supermarkets (many carry the Thai Kitchen brand). Red and green curry pastes work well too, but they are spicier. This is a gluten-free recipe, so make sure all the prepared ingredients you use, such as fish sauce, are labelled “gluten-free.”

- 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 onion sliced
- 1 russet potato peeled and cubed
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- 2 cans coconut milk
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 5 tablespoons Thai yellow curry paste
- 1 cup chopped green bean
- 1 sweet red pepper sliced
- 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
- 1 can sliced bamboo shoots drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1 pkg (425 g) firm tofu drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
MethodIn large Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp of the oil over medium-high heat; cook onion until softened, about 3 minutes. Add potato and ginger; cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Stir in coconut milk, broth and curry paste; bring to boil. Stir in green beans and red pepper; reduce heat and simmer until green beans are tender-crisp and potatoes are fork-tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes, bamboo shoots, fish sauce, brown sugar and lime juice; cook until tomatoes begin to shrivel, about 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut tofu into 3/4-inch (2 cm) cubes; pat dry with paper towel. Toss tofu with remaining oil. Spread on baking sheet; broil until edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
Gently stir tofu into curry; sprinkle with cilantro.
