Vegan Yellow Curry with Tofu

Yellow Thai Curry

Curry has become my absolute favorite food. I never would have thought that. I used to eat only standard dishes and I actually did not know any international dishes. Fortunately, that has changed. Nowadays I try a lot of different meals.

What is so special about this yellow curry with tofu?

The curry is very quick to make. Of course, you prepare your ingredients first but after that, you just put everything together in a wok or pan. So you’ve cooked a fast, healthy dish that tastes great! You really can’t do anything wrong with that, can you?!

The addition of tofu and vegetables is also very special about this curry. Both in combination with the paste and coconut milk taste very delicious and creamy. I can only recommend it! I love tofu in every curry. It saturates very well. Tofu is also a high-quality source of protein for vegetarians and vegans.

Yellow, Green or Red Curry Paste

This yellow curry is a mild one and in my opinion a good way to get to know the Thai cuisine. The green curry is (or should be) the hottest of the three curries. The red curry is still quite hot but a little bit milder. They are very delicious too. However, it should not be too hot for me.

I didn’t make the paste myself though. I buy mine mostly in Asian shops or also in supermarkets. These pastes taste very good. Vegetarians and vegans should pay attention to the ingredients because they could contain fish. On the one hand, you can make the paste yourself but I haven’t tried that yet. On the other hand, you can only use spices. For example, we have a Thai spice mixture at home but it has been too spicy for me so far.

Or do you prefer Indian curry?

Meal Prep

This curry is also perfect for Meal Prep. The next day it usually tastes even better. By the way, I feel the same way with most dishes too, do you know that feeling? 😀 The best thing is to prepare a large amount of curry for yourself and have some of it for the next few days. You can store it in the fridge for about five days or freeze it. I’m very happy when I don’t feel like cooking or if I don’t have the time to simply get my finished dish out of the fridge 🙂
