  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches green onions, wash and trim off root end
  • 1-14 ounce can light coconut milk
  • 3-4 Tbsp soy or tamari sauce (reduced sodium)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1-2 teaspoons chili paste with garlic (find with Thai foods in the grocery store)
  • 1 lb. firm or extra-firm tofu (drain water and cut into 3/4 inch cubes)
  • 4 ripe plum tomatoes (may use canned), cut into pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 pound fresh mushrooms (I use shiitake) - cut off stems and slice thickly
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped (find in the produce section of the grocery store or your garden during the growing season)
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped greens of your choice (kale, collards, swiss chard, bok choy or spinach)
  • salt to taste (I don't use any)

Directions

  • Cut white and green part of onions into 2 inch diagonal pieces. Finely chop some of the green stems for garnish and reserve.
  • In a Dutch oven or large kettle, combine coconut milk, 3 Tbsp. soy sauce, brown sugar, curry powder, ginger and 1 teaspoon chili paste. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Then add tofu, tomatoes, bell pepper, mushrooms, basil, greens, and green onion pieces.
  • Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes more or until veggies are tender.
  • Adjust seasonings with soy sauce, chile paste, and salt.
  • Garnish with reserved chopped green onion.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Very good served over brown rice. I use organic Basmati rice (nothing smells sooo good!) by Lundberg Farms. Served with whole grain bread, a green salad, and fresh fruit completes the meal.
