  1. Pour water, 1/2 cup coconut milk, and rice into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook until golden-brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. When browned, stir in green beans, curry powder, and 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Simmer until the green beans are tender, then serve over rice.

I cook a lot of curry and this was awful. I did a lot to dress it up, added peas, corn, chili powder, cumin, cashews, salt/pepper, ect. Nothing could make it good.

This was very easy to make and really, really delicious. I added some dried basil and garlic salt to the tofu and green beans while they were cooking. Otherwise, no changes were needed - this is...
