Food: Coconut Red Curry Tofu with Vegetables

Never Homemaker is one of my absolute favorite blogs.  Even though I'm definitely not a runner I love reading about their marathon training, as well as drooling over their delicious looking recipes.

This week I decided to try something a little outside of my comfort zone with the Coconut Red Curry Tofu with Vegetables.  It was so easy, healthy, and simple (and delicious!) that it will definitely become a go-to weeknight meal. Curry gets a bad rep for being really pungent and strong, but this was very mild and mellow - not spicy or overpowering in the least.

A few quick notes: Be sure to brown your tofu pretty well (this takes a few minutes) - soggy tofu is really gross.  If tofu isn't your thing, this would probably work really well with chicken.

I stayed pretty true to their recipe, but I made two small changes.  First, I left out the basil - basil with anything other than Italian food doesn't work for me. Second, I made some asian lo-mein noodles to serve with this.  Certainly not traditional, but I love carbs.  Rice would also be good.


It smells delicious!


Have you read Never Homemaker before or tried any of the recipes?  What are your weeknight go-to meals?
