Yummy Thai Curry with Tofu, Mango, Coconut and Ginger

What you need: 

1/2 pound vegetables (I used baby carrots and sweet potatoes)
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil (or other oil)
2-3 ounces Thai curry paste (preferably masaman style)
2 tablespoons prepared pad Thai sauce
1-2" piece ginger, shredded
1 (14 ounce) box extra firm tofu
2 teaspoons dry garlic
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons dry cilantro
1/4 teaspoon cardamom, optional
1/4 cup dried or fresh mango, diced
1/2 cup light coconut milk
small handful shredded coconut
2 1/2 cups cooked rice or noodles

What you do: 

1. Steam veggies over low medium heat for 15 minutes. While the veggies are cooking, heat the oil in a pan with curry paste on medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
2. Add pad Thai sauce, ginger and tofu, stirring in for a few more minutes. Add garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, and spices and dried mango over tofu for a few minutes.
3. Stir in coconut milk and coconut, and let dish marinate for 5 minutes on low heat.
4. Dish out noodles or rice, and spoon curry over, and mix.

I followed this recipe very loosely and came up with a yummy mango/coconutty tofu and spinach dish.  It was delicious.  :D


Awesome. =D


Yep, this is my kind of dish!

I omitted the pad thai sauce (didn't have any) and used fresh slivers of mango rather than dried.  I also didn't add any vegetables to the mix; I just used the mango because I wanted it nice and fruity.  To keep with the fruity theme, I marinated the tofu in pineapple juice 24 hours before I made the dish. 


This recipe sounds totally up my alley!!!  ...and it sounds like something I made a couple of months ago.  Will make this recipe very soon and will report back on the similarities.
