Instructions
 

Crispy Sriracha Tofu

  • Add the vegan sriracha, garlic powder, ground ginger, and salt into a medium-sized bowl. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the vegan sriracha, garlic powder, ground ginger, and salt into a medium-sized bowl. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the cubed tofu into the bowl and gently toss until they are evenly coated in the marinade. Cover and place in the refrigerator while you make the curry. Once the curry is nearly done cooking, you can finish preparing and cooking the tofu.
  • Line a sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper. Place the cornstarch in a wide, shallow bowl.
  • Coat a handful of the marinated tofu in the cornstarch extremely well and then shake them to dust off the excess cornstarch. Place them on the prepared sheet pan. Repeat this step with the rest of the tofu.
  • Place a large, non-stick saute pan over medium heat. Once hot, add in the coconut oil. Once the oil is hot, add in all of the tofu. Make sure you are using a pan large enough to fit all of the tofu without overcrowding them; otherwise, you will have to fry them in multiple batches.
  • Fry these for 10 minutes, only turning them over as necessary to get all sides super crispy and golden brown. If they stick to your pan, this means either your pan is not non-stick, or the tofu isn't ready to be turned over. To avoid sticking, I highly encourage using a non-stick pan, as mentioned above.

Coconut Thai Green Curry

  • Place a large, deep saute pan over medium heat. Once hot, add in the coconut oil followed by the onions. Saute for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the garlic and ginger into the pan and cook for about 45 seconds, stirring constantly.
  • Add the coconut milk, vegetable stock, green curry paste, and salt into the pan. Stir until well combined, turn the heat up to medium-high, and bring the mixture up to a boil.
  • Once the liquid is at a steady, rolling boil, turn the heat back down to medium and cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the carrots, broccoli, and bell peppers into the pan, stir well, and cook for another 4 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add the snow peas into the pan, stir well, and cook everything for one more minute.

For Serving

  • Serve the curry over a bed of rice of choice, then top it with however many pieces of crispy tofu your heart desires. Garnish with a small handful of peanuts, a few cilantro leaves, and a pinch of sliced green onions!
