This blog ongoing . . . (and curry)

I think I'll use this forum to put all my favorite recipes and old standbys as I make them. Or just to talk about food.

The other night, I used Curry Simple's green curry sauce to make an awesome dinner for me & John (not the kids). I started by taking rice noodles, putting them in a 9x9 brownie pan with hot water to soak for 20 minutes. Then, I took extra firm tofu (I usually use firm, but they were out), cut it into little bite sized squares, and sauteed them in olive oil until nicely browned. I added strips of red and yellow peppers too. Then I added broccoli, a 1/4 cup of water, and put the lid on (to steam the broccoli). Once that seemed cooked to my liking, I added the curry sauce ( and the rice noodles. (Mmmm I love those rice noodles.) It seemed awfully soupy (maybe from the water I added), so I let it cook down a bit. (Next time I think I'll keep it nice and saucy.) I cooked jasmine rice on the side, but with the noodles, we really didn't need it. It was SO good. I was bummed there weren't many left overs.
