Tofu Curry Stir-fry

            In a desire to add variety to our diet, Sally and I have discovered the wonderful possibilities that are available with tofu (дупу). This recipe is easy to make and can be made with chicken if preferred.

Marinade Ingredients:
Rice ingredients:
Other ingredients:

¾ cup of olive oil
½ cup of water
2 tbsp. of cider vinegar
1 jar of red curry paste 4oz
Ginger powder
4 cloves of garlic
10-20 black pepper kernels
Curry powder

One pound of tofu or chicken breast

2 cups of rice
4 cups of water
Universal seasoning

2 carrots
2-3 bell peppers
2 onions

1. Marinade the Tofu:

            Combine ¾ cup of olive oil, ½ cup of water, 2 tbsp. of cider vinegar, one 4 ounce jar of Classic Thai red curry paste, dried or fresh parsley, ginger powder, 4 chopped cloves of garlic, 10-20 kernels of crushed black pepper, curry powder. (Add other pepper powders or hot red pepper paste for extra heat. This mixture can be changed to personal taste. Don’t be afraid to experiment, since curry is usually pretty forgiving.)
            Add cubed tofu or raw boneless chicken breast, and let marinade for 30 minutes to 3 hours.  

2. Cook seasoned rice:

            Combine two cups of rice, 4 cups of water, a splash of oil, about a tablespoon of dried parsley flakes, and a tablespoon of Vigora universal seasoning salt.
            Cook in a pot on a stove or rice cooker until finished. Stir frequently.

3. Sautee Vegetables:
            Combine a dash of oil, onion, carrot, bell pepper, and any other veggies you desire in a frying pan. Sautee veggies until tender.

4. Add the marinade and tofu mix to the veggies and cook in the skillet until everything is boiling nicely. If you have excess liquid you can simmer for an additional 30-45 minutes without overcooking the meat/meat substitute. The end result is a nice oily curry that goes great on the seasoned rice!! Any curry paste can be used for this dish as long as it is mixed well with the marinade. If you don’t have curry paste, it is also possible to use curry powder, but the end result is not as thick.
