Quick Red Thai Curry (Meatless Monday)

Aug 13, 2012
So, again its that time of the week- Monday which means I go meatless for a day. I have no problem when it comes to breakfast & lunch but every week- dinner gets little challenging. I had been craving Thai for few days and there is something about the coconut milk & basil combination that always hits the spot, I can never get enough of it..

Tofu makes a great substitution for protein in meat dishes.  Tofu tandoori wrap  is one of my all- time favorite lunch. Also, they are great addition to stir fry's.

I made a quick red thai curry with tofu with veggies & lots of freshly chopped basil in less than 30 minutes.


Stir fry veggies of your choice & tofu separately. Then mix red thai curry paste, soy sauce, fish sauce & coconut milk (light) in a pan and let it cook for 5-8 minutes. Combine veggies & tofu and let it cook for additional 10 minutes. Add coconut milk if needed. Throw in chopped fresh basil (a lot of it).  Serve it with cooked rice.

  2. SO glad I am going for lunch to a Thai restaurant today...this recipe looks great! I usually opt for pad thai but this recipe seems too easy (and delicious) to not try!
