INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Season tofu with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick pan, coated with the olive oil, sauté the tofu until lightly browned and crispy. Remove and set aside.
  2. In the same nonstick pan, sauté onion, carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, ginger, and garlic for 3-5 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Add in the coconut milk, water, curry powder, salt and pepper, and bring to boil.
  4. Toss in the cilantro and sweet basil, and simmer for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the tofu, and serve over a bed of brown rice*.

*I love mine with brown rice and quinoa. If you are gluten-free, try tossing this over cauliflower fried rice!
