Ingredients

Directions

  • Halve tofu horizontally; then crosswise. (You should have 4 equal squares). Cut each square diagonally into 2 triangles. Arrange tofu in one layer on a baking sheet lined with 3 layers of paper towels; cover with three more layers. Place another baking sheet and a weight on top. Let tofu drain until towels are soaked, about 20 minutes.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu, and cook, turning once, until golden-brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a plate. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining tablespoon oil, onion, and curry powder. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Add coconut milk and 1/2 cup water; bring to a gentle simmer. Return tofu to skillet. Add green beans and tomatoes, cover, and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Serve over rice if desired.

I made this one twice. The first time mostly as per recipe (except fresh green beens and regular coconut milk). I agree with the other reviewers, not bad, relatively simple, but too bland. The second time I added an additional 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground ginger and 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Otherwise the same. I thought this did a lot to zip up the flavor.

I made this & added green pepper & used fresh sugar snap peas in place of the frozen greeen beans. My husband liked it but I felt that the other reviewers were correct. It is pretty bland. Probably will not be made again.

This dish is so yummy. I use fresh baby green beans or Chinese snow peas and fresh peas, and I cut the tofu into smaller triangles.

Takes much longer than the 15 minutes it says at the top. Very colorful, but not delicious

I added extra curry powder, a green pepper, water chestnuts, cumin, lime juice and shredded coconut to the rice. I liked it and encourage others to embellish on this basic recipe . . . to your own taste.
