Cooking for the Unemployed: Thai Curry Tofu

Posted by kathleenerindavis on April 15, 2010

As I mentioned, I’m cooking a lot this week. Some of my recipes aren’t new or different enough to blog about, but last night’s dinner was super yummy. I highly recommend it.  I made a Thai Curry Tofu with jasmine rice and edamame. The recipe didn’t call for the snow peas, but a threw some in for a little texture, I also upped the curry and garlic (reflected below).  Here’s the recipe:

Thai Curry Tofu


1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 (12 ounce) package extra-firm tofu,

drained and cubed

1 tablespoon seasoned salt, or to taste

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1 small onion, chopped

Handful of snowpeas

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 (10 ounce) can coconut milk

3 teaspoons curry powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu cubes, season with seasoned salt and fry until golden on all sides, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Remove to paper towels, and set aside.
2. Melt butter or margarine in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until tender. Stir in coconut milk, curry powder, salt, pepper and cilantro. Return the tofu to the skillet, and the snowpeas. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
