Pretty good! I changed it up a bit, as I always do. I used sesame oil instead of canola, added 4 cloves of garlic, used a bag of frozen vegetables plus some broccoli and frozen peas, lite coconut milk, a whole block of tofu (marinated in soy sauce), omitted the pesto/basil. Served it over white basmati rice. VERY liquidy, though...maybe my "can" of coconut milk was too large?? I will also fry the tofu next time because it was too mushy (and I drained it for an hour!). It was very good overall, but I will be changing it up a bit next time. Oh, and I used the full 2 Tbsp of curry paste, and my boyfriend and I both loved it that way. 4 stars!


I forgot to add that I used only 1 tbsp of red curry paste (I used Thai Kitchen brand) and although I loved it (and actually would have liked even more), it was still waaaayyy too spicy for my non-spice-loving partner.  So, definitely adjust the paste accordingly.  If you don't like heat, try just 1 tsp.


Yum...  I didn't have any pesto and used different veggies (peas, broccoli, etc.), but it still came out great!
