Not sure if it was all the rain that we’ve been getting or what but I was seriously craving this Vegan Coconut Curry last night. Also made some crispy tofu that was such a perfect addition. I’ll share my trick to getting it super crispy!
Vegan Coconut Curry with Crispy Tofu
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 4 cloves garlic crushed or finely minced
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1 tbsp ginger crushed or finely minced
- 2 tbsp red curry paste
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp salt & pepper
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 large sweet potato chopped into cubes
- 1 bell pepper chopped
- 2 cans coconut milk
- 1 lime
- 1 tsp fish sauce omit for vegan
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp sriracha optional
- 2 tsp tapioca flour optional
- fresh basil
- rice of your choice to serve
- 1 package organic firm tofu They range from 12-16 oz- any of these sizes will work just fine!
- 1 tbsp tapioca flour
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- salt & pepper
- avocado oil
Set your InstantPot to sauté (you can also just use a pot over medium heat) and add coconut oil, garlic, white onion, ginger, red curry paste, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. Saute together for 3-4 minutes.
Add in your veggies! Saute for another 3-4 minutes then add coconut milk, juice from one lime, fish sauce (omit for vegan), soy sauce, and sriracha for spice. Set to pressure cook for 10 minutes (or cover pot and cook for 30 min).
Quick release and a few fresh basil leaves.
*Optional- add 2 tsp tapioca flour to thicken the sauce. Just mix with 1/3 cup water then add!
Serve with rice and some sriracha on top!
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut your organic firm tofu in half longways and place on a cutting board covered with a dish towel. Place another dish towel over the tofu and then place something heavy on top (I did like 5 cookbooks). This helps drain out any liquid so it can get extra crispy!
After 20 min, cut the tofu into cubes. Toss in 1 tbsp tapioca flour, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, salt, pepper and a drizzle of avocado oil.
Lay your tofu out of a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes.
Serve with your curry over rice!
