  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups stir-fry and 1/2 cup rice)
  • Cook time:20 Minutes
  • Prep time:19 Minutes
  • Other:30 Minutes


  • 1 (14-ounce) package extra firm tofu
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons green curry paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can light coconut milk

  • 3 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into thin strips (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 6 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces


Wrap tofu in several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Press with a heavy object for about 30 minutes to remove excess water. Remove paper towels; pat tofu dry, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes.

. While tofu drains, combine soy sauce and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

. Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

. While rice cooks, heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add tofu; cook 10 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides. Remove tofu from pan; keep warm.

. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil in pan. Add ginger and garlic, and sauté 30 seconds. Add zucchini and bell pepper; sauté 2 minutes. Add green onions; sauté 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. Add soy sauce mixture and tofu. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Serve immediately over hot cooked basmati rice.
