FANTASTIC! Granted, I made several modifications, but this was an easy dinner recipe that looks like it takes far longer to prepare. I used Nasoya extra firm tofu cubes, which I drained in a towel inside a colander for about 2 hours to make sure that the tofu was dry before frying. I had some shallots that I substituted for the onion and used extra garlic. Then I added the curry powder (3 tsp.) and 1 1/2 heaping tsp. of green curry paste and let it cook for about a minute on the stove before adding the coconut milk and stirring before adding the tofu, one head of cauliflower cut into florets, and a package of cut butternut squash from the produce section. Lastly, I added 2 pieces of lemongrass that I bruised first and then cut into about 4 inch sections. I put the cover on it and let it cook until the squash and cauliflower were cooked, but not mushy and then added the cilantro -- an entire bunch of cilantro chopped. Served over white rice and my house smelled super fantastic. Definitely a keeper and I will make it again.


I made this dish for the second time tonight and it turned out great. The first time I made it I followed the recipe without modifications, and it turned out salty and bland. This time I fried the tofu with garlic and ginger. I also added one chopped jalopeno, extra garlic, some red crushed pepper, ginger, portobello mushrooms, carrots, and green beans. It was wonderful.


Delicious! This was perfect. I followed the recipe as it was printed (except my can of milk was 13.5oz.) and both my husband and I loved it. This was simple and ingredients are usually on hand in this house. I will make it again. Attn readers: This is not a spicy dish, if your in a spicy mood, try a red curry. This is very creamy and smooth and mild and delicious!
