Curry tofu over rice

1 large white onion diced
2 tomatoes diced
1 cup vegetable broth
1 can 13 oz coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsp curry powder (mild)
1 package extra firm tofu
Pam cooking spray
3 cups cooked white rice

Heat broth over medium low heat in a deep pan. Dice onion and add it to the broth. Dice tomato and add to the broth. Open coconut milk. You may have to stir it some as the top tends to settle into a thick cream. Add coconut milk to pan, along with salt and curry powder. Stir together with a whisk. While sauce cooks down and thickens remove tofu from water and slice in 1/2 in pieces. Coat a separate sauté pan with Pam and place tofu in pan. Cook over medium heat until tofu browns slightly. Flip and repeat. Once tofu is done, add it to your curry sauce, cover and simmer on low until sauce is thin and onions are soft. Serve over a bed of white or brown rice. I actually topped it with basil but I did that after I put it on the table so I didn't get pictures. The fresh basil totally rocked. Next time I think I would chop the tofu into 1" pieces after I cooked it before putting it in the sauce.

Looks good already


Coconut milk (please...don't lick the spoon as much as I did)

Curry powder x 5

Stir and it already smells like heaven

Tofu. Our first meeting. Hmmm. When I opened it, water came out all over the cutting board. Not very nice if you ask me, but who's askin!

I sliced it about 1/2" thick so it would hold up to the frying and sauce bath.

Hot skillet

Dump it in the sauce

White rice

Top with lots of sauce and tofu eat and enjoy!

I used this brand of curry powder, found at whole foods.
