The dish I prepared was a simple Thai-ish stir-fry with Black pepper seared Tofu! I say Thai-ish because I didn't follow any specific Thai recipe, but I prepared it based on my own intuition of what the dish would taste like, had it been prepared Thai style. Or something like that :)
1 brick of Extra-Firm Organic Tofu
Finely shredded ginger - 2 Tbsp
Chilli powder - 1 Tsp
Curry Powder - 1 Tbsp
Coconut oil - 2 Tbsp
Coconut milk - 1 can
Garlic paste - 1 Tbsp
Coarsely-ground black pepper - 1 Tbsp
Asian stir-fry veggies - 1 pack
Cilantro for garnish (optional)
- Heat up the 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet/wok. When the oil is hot, add the tofu and sear the tofu, adding 1/2 Tbsp of the garlic paste and coarsely-ground black pepper. Once the tofu is seared, remove from skillet/wok.
- Heat up 1 Tbsp of oil in the same skillet/wok, and stir-fry the veggies with 1/2 Tbsp of the garlic paste, the shredded ginger, chili powder and curry powder. Add the coconut milk along the way. Cook until much of the milk is evaporated.
- Add the seared tofu to the mix and stir.
Bon appetit' :)
