Red Curry Tofu Stir-Fry

Red Curry Tofu Stir-Fry

  • Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup tofu mixture and 1/2 cup rice)


  • 1 none (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1 none (13.5-ounce) can light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 2/3 cup uncooked basmati rice
  • 8 ounces asparagus spears
  • 2 teaspoons peanut oil
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms stemmed and sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion


Wrap tofu blocks 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 1-inch cubes; set aside.

Combine coconut milk and next 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add tofu to coconut milk mixture. Cover and chill 1 hour.

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

Drain tofu well, reserving marinade. Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Cut asparagus into 2-inch pieces.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add peanut oil and tofu; cook 5 minutes, turning cubes until lightly browned on all sides. Transfer tofu to a serving bowl.

Add asparagus, mushrooms, and onion to pan; stir-fry 3 minutes. Add reserved marinade to pan; cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until thick. Pour vegetable mixture over tofu, tossing gently. Serve immediately over hot cooked basmati rice.
