Coconut Milk and Tofu Curry

Hello lovely people! If you love veggies the way I do, you’ll be thrilled when checking the ingredients’ list. This curry recipe features bok choy and mushrooms amongst others and I found this combination to be particularly successful.

When I’m cooking Asian food, I find myself struggling with the cooking time and my veggies tend to always be slightly too soft. One trick I’ve learned over the years is to prepare all the ingredients in advance to stir fry them all at once and to add the liquid ingredients like coconut milk at the very end so that the vegetables are still deliciously crunchy.

Whether you’re a long-time vegan or if you’re just trying to cut down on meet and still want to eat amazing food, this recipe is for you!
