Lunch & Dinner, Recipes

Green Curry Tofu and Vegetables

Weeknight meals don’t have to be boring.

This is an easy meal to assemble, and I generally have the ingredients on hand.

The rice cooks while the vegetables and sauce are on the stove, and after the chopping is done, the work is over. It’s a simple dish that leaves leftovers, so it’s perfect for a weekday dinner. There’s always enough for at least one of us to have it for lunch the next day, too.
