Eating healthy sometimes requires a bit of creative planning to enjoy meals beyond simple salads, chicken and roasted fish. But that doesn’t meat eating healthy has to be difficult or boring. There’s plenty of options out there for creative, delicious recipes; regardless of dietary preferences. This Vegan Coconut Curry Tofu Stir-Fry recipe is dairy-free, meat-free (vegan at that) and gluten-free, yet full of texture, color and flavor.
While I enjoy a wide-range of food, including gluten-based recipes and desserts, I try to offset with healthier recipes like this tofu stir-fry. This helps me reach my New Years goals, with a bit of treats here and there. Little choices add up to big results in the long-run, which is why every diet choice, even small, is important.
Making this Vegan Coconut Curry Tofu Stir-Fry is quick and easy. Technically it can be made in one pot, if you do each step separately. Or you can get a few pots going at once and have this ready in about 20 minutes, making it perfect for a healthier weeknight meal. Start with cooking soba noodles. Be sure to look at the ingredients, as some brands contain wheat. Cook and rinse under cool water. This is critical as it stops the noodles from cooking and getting soggy (common with soba noodles).
The curry sauce includes coconut milk, cashew milk, agave syrup and curry powder. I used Silk Almond Cashewmilk Omega 3, which is dairy-free, lactose-free and a great way to get more plants in your diet. It’s ideal for making lightened-up recipes like this Vegan Coconut Curry Tofu Stir-Fry. This new Silk Almond & Cashew Dairy free milk with Flax is a delicious blend of almonds and cashews.
Once the coconut curry sauce it made, stir in seared tofu and edamame beans for a generous dose of plant-based protein. This wholesome, dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan stir-fry is a simple way to brighten up your healthy eating menu and reach your New Year’s goals.
