Crispy Baked Tofu:

  • 1 14-oz block tofu
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari

Curry:

  • 8 oz rice noodles
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 small shallots, chopped finely
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 3 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • half a sliced red bell pepper + 2-3 cups assorted vegetables (I used broccoli florets, fresh bean sprouts, and carrots)
  • 1 14 oz can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water, plus more if needed
  • 3 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 tbsp lime juice

For Garnish:

  • chopped cilantro
  • fresh basil
  • green onions

Serves: 3-4

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 425F. Press tofu to remove water (see notes in my blog post for how to do this), then cut into 3/4 inch cubes and toss with soy sauce, olive oil, and cornstarch to coat. Spread cubes evenly on a piece of parchment paper and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. In the meantime, place dried rice noodles in a bowl of warm water to soak until pliable (skip if using fresh rice noodles).
In a large saucepan, heat coconut oil over medium heat, then sauté shallot, ginger, and garlic until fragrant and softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add curry paste and cook for one minute, then stir in bell pepper and rest of vegetables, stirring for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add coconut milk, water, tamari, turmeric, sugar, salt, and the prepared rice noodles, and simmer until noodles are tender but still have a chewy bite, about 4 minutes. (If necessary, add in more liquid while cooking.)
Stir in the lime juice. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Top with tofu cubes, cilantro, basil, and chopped green onions, and serve. Enjoy!
