Red Curry with Vegetables

Ladle the stew over rice to soak up every bit of the delicious sauce.


* 4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
* 1 14-ounce package extra-firm tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
* 1 pound sweet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes
* 1 14-ounce can lite coconut milk
* 1/2 cup vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth
* 1-2 teaspoons red Thai curry paste
* 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
* 1 tablespoon brown sugar (or sweetener of choice)
* 2 teaspoons lime juice
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
* 1 lime, quartered


1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and cook, stirring every 2 or 3 minutes, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
2. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potato and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add coconut milk, broth and curry paste to taste. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potato is just tender, about 4 minutes. Add the tofu, green beans and brown sugar; return to a simmer and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the green beans are tender-crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in lime juice and salt. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
