Thai Spiced Tofu Recipe

Thai Spiced Tofu

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces firm tofu, cut into four 1/2-inch slices
  • 3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste (found in the Asian section of most supermarkets)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce or tamari (for vegetarians who don’t eat fish)
  • 1/2 pound green beans
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil

Procedure:

  1. Or use 4 ounces of tofu plus a tilapia fillet or a boneless, skinless chicken-breast half.
  2. Place the tofu between layers of paper towels and weigh them down with a heavy skillet to remove excess water. Set aside to drain for 10 minutes.
  3. Combine the curry paste, sugar, and fish sauce; put half this sauce in a resealable plastic bag. (If using fish or chicken, divide that half of the curry sauce between 2 bags – one for the tofu and one for the fish or chicken.) Add the tofu and fish or chicken (if using), seal, and set aside for 15 minutes. In a saucepan, combine the green beans, broth, oil, and the remaining curry. Simmer until the beans are tender, about 5 minutes. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with vegetable cooking spray and place it over medium heat. When hot, add the tofu and cook until golden, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a dinner plate and cover. (Cook the fish or chicken if using.) Serve with the green beans.
