What is a good tofu curry recipe

Yellow Thai curry with tofu

Curry has become my absolute favorite food. I would never have thought that before. There was always only the standard dishes and so far I had hardly known any international dishes. Fortunately that has changed. Since I've been eating healthier and mainly plant-based, I've been trying out a lot more in the kitchen. Spices are so fun to work with. That's why you will find a wide variety of tasty plant-based dishes here :).

What makes this yellow curry with tofu so special?

The curry is also made very quickly. You prepare your ingredients first, of course, but in the end everything is cooked together in a wok or pan. So you have cooked a quick, healthy dish that also tastes very good! You really can't go wrong with that, can you ?!

What is special about this curry is the addition of tofu and vegetables. Both in combination with the paste and coconut milk taste so delicious and creamy. I can only recommend it! I love tofu in almost every curry. It is very filling. Furthermore, tofu is a high quality source of protein. Either you use natural or smoked tofu. Smoked tofu gives the curry a special note through its own taste. Personally, I like the yellow Thai curry with smoked tofu best.

Yellow, green or red curry paste

The yellow Thai curry is a mild variant and, in my opinion, very well suited to simply get a taste of Thai cuisine. The green curry is the hottest. In contrast, the red one is still quite hot, but a bit milder. I also like both variants. However, it must still not be too hot.

I didn't make the paste myself, though. I usually buy mine in the Asia store. The pastes taste very good, but make sure that they do not contain any unnecessary additives. The curry pastes often contain fish sauce. On the one hand, you can make the paste yourself, but I haven't tried that yet. On the other hand, you can just use spices.

By the way, fresh ingredients spice up the dish, such as ginger, coriander or vegetables.

Or you curry?

Meal prep

The curry is also perfect for meal prep. The next day it usually tastes even better. By the way, I feel the same way with some dishes, do you know that too? 😀 It is best to prepare a large amount of curry straight away and have some of it for the next few days. You can refrigerate it for about five days, or you can freeze it. Every now and then I'm happy, if I don't feel like cooking or have the time, to be able to simply get my finished dish out of the fridge :-).
