Panang Tofu Curry

After many months of silence, I'm posting two in one night. From the same magazine. Shameful.

It comes under their 50 Easy Ways to Eat Green article, which I was a little meh about, but I do love tofu, and I double-love coconut milk.

Usually my Thai curries cheat - as in, I buy the red curry paste and work from there. This one builds your own base of shallots, ginger, garlic, peanut butter, spices and chili paste. I had to double the chili paste, and I also cut the amount of tofu in half, because I like things saucy. I also can't imagine eating two packages of tofu in one week, so there you go.

Yay, Panang Tofu Curry! It looks a little yellow, but it's yellowy goodness thanks to carrots and peppers. Next time I'll add some broccoli, I think. Get a little accent colour in there.

Wow, looks so gorgeous. I'm sure its beauty is every indication of how it tasted too.

And you know what's funny. I just finished reading this month's Bon Appetit tonight. What a great issue. Full of green eating ideas. 50, in fact. I totally recommend checking out the article online.

Ah yes, the gorgeousness of the curry surpassed only by the chef herself.
