RED CURRY TOFU BOWL


Simple red curry tofu and veggies over rice using red curry paste and whatever vegetables you have in the crisper. I used carrots, baby bok choy and some edamame. I also added a jalapeno pepper for a little bit of a kick because I'm like that; you do you. No rules, just yum.

INGREDIENTS

1.5 cups rice of choice

14 oz package extra firm tofu, drained and pressed

2 carrots, peeled & sliced

1 bunch baby bok choy, sliced, separating white parts from green.

1 Tbsp minced ginger

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeño pepper, minced

1 Tbsp brown sugar

14 oz can coconut milk

1/2 cup shelled edamame

3 Tbsp chopped cilantro

DIRECTIONS
