Red Curry Noodles and Tofu

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces stir fry rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks of green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp ginger powder (or a knob of fresh ginger)
  • 14 ounces extra firm tofu, cubed (My preference is Trader Joe's Organic SPROUTED)
  • 1 - 2 tsp turmetic
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 4 cups stir fry vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, red peppers, mushrooms, etc)
  • 1/2 (14-oz) can coconut milk
  • 1/2 (14-oz) can coconut cream
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (or coconut aminos), divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 tablespoons sriracha (or your favorite hot sauce)
  • handful of cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Prepare noodles according to instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Squeeze tofu between paper towels prior to cutting into cubes. Toss with 2 TBS soy sauce (or liquid aminos), turmeric and onion powder. Allow to sit, or you can bake in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes to give a firmer texture.
  3. Heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Alternatively, add 1/4 cup water to pan.
  4. Add the garlic and white parts of green onions.
  5. Saute until soft and onions are a bit transparent.
  6. Add the curry paste, tofu (if not baking), and the vegetables to the pan. Stir gently, and saute until the the vegetables are done – about 10 minutes.
  7. Add the coconut milk, soy sauce, sugar, and sriracha (hot sauce) and allow to simmer just a bit longer.
  8. Add the cooked noodles and combine. Test the noodles for desired tenderness...you can cook them longer in the sauce if needed.
  9. Adjust seasonings, serve, add cilantro on the top
