Tofu Green Curry

I’ve long wanted to give a try into making my own curry paste. It’s so easy that I can’t believe it took me this long to actually make it and I love the aroma of curry in the house after you cook it. I used real coconut milk from a coconut but canned milk will do as well.
 
Green curry paste:
  • 1 stalk lemon grass, white part minced
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp.  ground cumin
  • 2 ½ tbsp. Bragg’s liquid amino’s or other wheat free soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 2 green chilies, roasted on stove or on BBQ until skin is blistery and slightly black.
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 thumb size fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 tbsp. limejuice
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup fresh basil
  • 1 can coconut milk or 1 ½ cup fresh coconut milk
  • 1 cup extra firm tofu, drained and cubed
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 cup asparagus tips
  • 1 cup cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • Salt to taste

Steam carrot, asparagus and cauliflower al dente.

Place everything for the paste in a food processor or blender and puree. Add coconut milk and blend well.

Heat oil in a large saucepan on medium heat and sauté tofu for a minute or two. Add curry sauce, vegetables and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt to taste.· Serve over cooked rice or noodles.
