Thai Red Curry
Today for lunch we were craving Thai curry so decided to play with the recipe and added a lot more veggies including spinach .This curry is packed with veggies and is very filling and you dont feel guilty eating a second serving because of the lite coconut milk .I did use the store bought red curry sauce to make life a little easier and made the dish with lite coconut milk to make it less in calories .It was an absolute hit and if I may say so myself better that the resturant one. This can be enjoyed with rice or noodles .Now this will be a staple curry in our house!!
1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
1 small white onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
Pinch of salt, more to taste
•1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic minced
1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin 2-inch long strips

1/2 cup snap peas
1 /2 block extra firm tofu ( optional )
2 tablespoons vegan Thai curry paste

1 tea spoon red chilly powder
1 tablespoon vegan soy sauce ( Yondu Vegetable Umami Plant-based Seasoning Sauce )

1. To make the curry, warm a large wok over medium heat.
2. Once it’s hot, add the oil. Add the onion and a sprinkle of salt and cook, stirring often, until the onion has softened and is turning translucent, about 5 minutes.

8. Remove the pot from the heat and season with 1 tea spoon tamari sauce or thai seasoning sauce ( yondu brand ) .
9. Add salt to taste. If the curry needs a little more punch, add ½ teaspoon more tamari or 1/2 tea spoon vinegar for more acidity and 1 tea spoon red chilly powder for extra spice .
