You know what’s great about cooking? You don’t really need a recipe, as long as you know the basic flavor you want, you don’t need much else. You know what’s great about vegan cooking? It’s super easy. Why? It’s mostly vegetables, grains, nuts and beans. You don’t have to worry about cooking a meat, and if things aren’t 100% cooked, they may not kill you.
I hadn’t been sure about what to cook next for a while, and I asked the Facebook world. One of my good friends suggested curry. I’ve made curry many times, but I hadn’t made green curry yet. The last time I had curry I had a Thai Green curry with zucchini and tofu and thought it would be easy to replicate. I was right, while it wasn’t as spicy as the one I had at the restaurant, it was still favorable.
The nice thing about curries is that they can be vegan, full of vegetables and overly delicious. While they can take some time, they are very easy. This green curry is very easy, full of protein and will make you wonder why you ever ordered delivery from that Thai place again.
Here’s what to get from the store:
Thai Green Chili Paste
Red Chili Paste
Green Curry with Tofu and Vegetables
2 small zucchini, diced
1 cob of corn, corn removed
1/2 onion, diced
5 button mushrooms, diced
5 cloves garlic, smashed
1 can coconut milk
3 tbsp green chili paste
1/2 block tofu, cubed
1 can bamboo shoots
1 tsp red chili paste
Salt, pepper, tumeric
1 cup cooked Jasmine rice
- In a saute pan, saute the onion and garlic until fragrant. Add the mushroom, zucchini and corn. Saute until almost cooked through, adding salt, pepper and turmeric.
- Add the tofu and saute until the tofu is slightly browned.
- Pour the coconut milk in along with the green and red pastes and stir. Add the bamboo shoots and taste to adjust seasonings.
- Serve over cooked Jasmine rice.
I’ve been doing some cardio before my yoga, and today I discovered that I’ve been doing burpees wrong. I did them right today, and man, not only do my legs hurt, so do my arms! I’m really happy with how much more in shape I’m in. The problem is that I had a cold and the end of last week, nothing huge, just a little congestion and lack of appetite. The congestion is starting to go away but my appetite isn’t really coming back. I’m a little confused, I know my metabolism hasn’t slowed down, and I don’t have any other symptoms. I’m not worried, I know my appetite will come back, I just don’t want to go back to just eating once a day like I used to. It’s not good for you, humans need to eat more than that to keep their bodies going. The important part about that is that the right foods need to be eaten, not just bad stuff. But, eat the bad stuff to, just eat your salad first.
