Thai Style Tofu Curry

Thai style coconut tofu soup

THIS VEGAN CURRY WILL HAVE YOU COMING BACK FOR MORE!

We love big bold flavors around here and this dish hits all the right flavor notes. The balance of spicy, salty, sweet, sour, and umami are just perfect.

Thai food is known to be spicy but you can make this dish as mild as you like. Plus, you can easily prepare this the night before or in the morning and simply pop it into the oven when you’re ready.

The longer it marinates, the more flavorful the tofu will be. Tofu is literally like a sponge as it soaks up all the flavors of whatever it is marinated in.

Serve with cauliflower/jasmine rice to soak up all the delicious curry!
