Who doesn’t love Thai-inspired food? It’s full of amazing flavors, colors, fragrant aromas, and it tends to be fairly budget-friendly. A true favorite. These are some of the reasons Michelle and I decided to share this incredible Yellow Tofu Curry recipe from The Friendly Vegan Cookbook, so we hope you love it as much as we do!
This yellow tofu curry is one of the 100 delicious recipes from my book, The Friendly Vegan Cookbook! I wrote this cookbook with my friend Michelle Cehn, founder of World of Vegan, and we are super excited to bring these easy to make plant-based recipes into your life. Grab your copy and enjoy!
Usually, after a long day of work, family duties, and daily happenings, the last thing we want to deal with is cooking a meal (and everything that comes with it like washing up and cleaning the kitchen), so ordering food becomes very tempting. We feel you! The great news is that having easy and delicious recipes like this Yellow Tofu Curry might change your mind. Why?
Most of the ingredients needed in this recipe are easy to find and very affordable, but there’s one that might not be in your pantry, the yellow curry paste. If you haven’t heard about this paste before, it’s usually made with lemongrass, cilantro, yellow chilies, garlic, and other fragrant spices. Make sure you choose one fully plant-based since some might contain fish sauce.
You should be able to find it in most grocery stores but if you have a hard time finding it in your local stores, you can try to order it online.
If you’d like to have firmer tofu, you can sauté it in 1 tablespoon of canola oil for 3 to 4 minutes before adding it in step 4. We hope you enjoy this delicious restaurant-worthy meal at home!
