Simple Thai-ish Stir-fry

I have been busy with lots of different things and I have also been riding over the weekends, now that it has finally gotten cooler here in North Texas.
Last weekend, however, I made time to indulge in one of my real passions, again! You guessed right - I cooked :)

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 :)

Ingredients:
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)

Preparation:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the seared tofu to the mix and stir.
Serve piping hot, with chili sauce with or without rice!

Bon appetit' :)
