Thai Green Curry Tofu & Vegetables

There’s something so deliciously complex about green curry. It’s sweet, creamy, and aromatic. Even better, it doesn’t have to be difficult to make and the at-home version is much better for you. There are so many variations, from which type of protein you add (if any!) to the vegetables you can use.

When I picked up my 3rd week of my CSA with Gruber Farm, I admired all the greens!

In this week’s box were bok choy, kale, spring onions, lettuce, snow peas, broccoli, and strawberries.Β I immediately knew that I should make green curry for dinner.

Thai Green Curry Tofu & Vegetables

Ingredients

  • 2-3 tbsp. green curry paste
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 1/2 block of tofu, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bok choy, leaves separated and stems cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 pound fresh snow peas
  • 1 small head of broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • handful of fresh basil leaves
  • juice of 1 lime

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the green curry paste, brown sugar, and coconut milk. Add to a large saute pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add tofu and vegetables, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables have softened.
  3. Add basil leaves and squeeze lime juice on top, then simmer for an additional minute. Remove from heat and serve over rice or couscous.

For a short list of ingredients, this curry is very flavorful. The basil and lime juice give it a nice finish. The most difficult part of the recipe is chopping the veggies, so grab your sous chef and get in the kitchen!

Β Do you prefer red, yellow, or green curry? With which protein and vegetables?

    You’ve really been cooking up some beautiful meals lately! I’m not a curry fan, but this still looks delish!

  • Boom. Just found what to do with my second week’s CSA.

  • I’ve only had curry once in my life when I was over in Germany (they’re huge on international cuisines!). Since then, I fell head over heels in love with Indian flavors. I believe that I tried the vegetarian red or orange curry. It was very sweet and had mixed veggies with an absolutely divine Indian cheese in it! Love your post. I definitely want to try it when I’m finished my semester and can go home to my kitchen!

    • indian dishes are so flavorful, right? πŸ™‚

    I’ve never actually MADE anything with curry! Isn’t that crazy?! I just never knew where to start! The green curry looks good though!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin

    I’ve actually never made green curry before! I want to try it, but I need to find a different brand of curry paste because I once had an allergic reaction to the Thai Kitchen red curry paste, so I don’t want to take chances.

    I’ve always made red curries and I like them with sweet peppers, snap peas, onions and tempeh.

    • i have yet to cook with tempeh…was staring at it at WF yesterday though. one day!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles

    I think I’ve only made curry at home once or twice – I might need to make that soon! I’m pretty sure I have a bottle of red curry paste somewhere – that was always my favourite.

    I like shrimp or chicken as the protein, and whatever veggies I happen to have laying around the house.

    • i like the red bc it’s a bit spicier. mmm!

  • kelly

    Those veggies all look amazing!!

  • I have been trying to decide what to do with my veggies from this week’s box. Making this tonight with chicken instead of tofu. Thanks!

  • Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl

    Yum!! I just cooked with bok choy for the first time a couple of weeks ago and LOVED it! I am super excited to see another recipe that calls for it (AND that involves curry!), so that I can cook with it again. Thanks for sharing :).

  • Green curry is my favorite! This recipe looks so good:)

  • this looks incredible!
