By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 mins

Ingredients

1 cup (200g) Basmati Rice

2–3 Spring Onions

1 16 oz (450g) Bag Frozen Peas and Carrots

1 Pack (9 oz/250g) White Button Mushrooms

2 tsp Vegan Green Curry Paste

1/4 cup (60ml) Coconut Milk

12 oz (340g) Extra Firm Tofu

1 Tbsp Peanut Butter

2 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce (or Tamari if Gluten-Free)

2 Tbsp Date Honey or Maple Syrup

1/2 tsp Garlic and Chili Spice (or other dried spice mix)

Instructions

1First, slice your tofu into cubes, and place onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

2Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes at 460 degrees fahrenheit (240 degrees celsius).

3While the tofu is baking, add the cup of rice along with 1.5 cups of water to a pot, turn the heat to high and cover the pot. As soon as it begins to boil, turn the heat down and simmer, covered, until cooked. The rice is cooked as soon as the water has cooked off. It is very quick – about 8-10 minutes.

4While the rice and tofu are on the go, saute chopped spring onions with green curry paste and then gradually add coconut milk.

5When that is heated and simmering, add the mushrooms, and cover the pot for a couple of minutes to allow the mushrooms to release their water.

6Then add the frozen peas and carrots and cook uncovered, turn down the heat and allow to simmer uncovered until only a little sauce remains.

7Then mix your veggies with the cooked rice in the pot.

8Now get your tofu marinade sauce ready.

9In a bowl, mix the peanut butter, soy sauce, date honey or maple syrup and spices together.

10As soon as the tofu is baked, transfer the tofu to a dish and pour the marinade sauce over it, making sure each piece is covered.

11Then, using a slotted spatula, move the marinaded tofu to a frying pan, leaving most of the sauce behind.

12Fry the tofu in its own marinade sauce until crispy and browned.

13Add to the pot with the rice and veggies and mix in. Pour over any remaining marinade sauce.
