Thai Green Tofu

I’ve been really enjoying thai red curries recently, so thought I’d try a green one for a change.  This recipe popped up on the Tesco site so I thought Id give it a go as their own-brand thai curry paste is fish-free! 🙂

DH & I both really liked it & it was dead easy to make, but the next time I made it I added some tofu to increase the protein.

Obviously the amounts & types of veg below can be changed to suit whatever you like/happen to have in the fridge and how hungry you are!

  • tofu, drained & cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 large tin (400ml) of coconut milk
  • 2 heaped tbsp of Thai green curry paste
  • 1 medium courgette, sliced
  • 1 head of broccoli, divided into small florets
  • 100g mangetouts or snow peas, trimmed
  • 100g baby sweetcorn, cut in half
  • 50g unsalted cashew nuts

to serve

  • rice or noodles


  1. Dry the tofu (I wrap it in a clean tea-towel & put under the heavy chopping board for 30mins)
  2. Don’t forget to put the rice or noodles on!
  3. Heat some oil in a frying pan or wok and brown the tofu
  4. While that’s cooking, put the coconut milk into another pan, then stir in the green curry paste and bring to a simmer.
  5. Add the courgettes and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the broccoli florets, mange touts and sliced baby sweet corn and simmer gently for a further 5 minutes.
  7. Serve topped with the tofu, toasted whole cashew nuts with some boiled rice or rice noodles.

    I love the flavours in this and all the lovely green veg. The asted tcashew nuts must give the curry a nice crunch too.

      This is definitely one of my favourite meals right now as it’s so quick & easy, and perfect for using up all the random bits of veg languishing in the bottom of the fridge!
