- 1 can light coconut milk
- 1-2 tbsp red curry paste
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 cup sprouted brown rice (uncooked)
- 1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped
- Cook your rice according to package directions.
- In a large saucepan, heat your avocado oil on medium high heat.
- Drain all the water from your tofu, chop into cubes, and add tofu to the pan on medium high heat. Cook your tofu for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Make sure your pan is large enough, or cook your tofu in 2 batches.
- In a separate saucepan, on medium heat, and your curry paste and can of coconut milk and stir together until incorporated. Increase heat to medium high and let reduce, for about 5 minutes. (You will see the sauce begin to bubble and thicken.)
