This is one of my favorite weeknight dinners because it is so flavorful, quick to make, and very versatile. Feel free to try other curry pastes but my favorite right now is this panang curry paste from Thai Home, made in Portland, OR. You can switch out the tofu for meat, and switch up any of the veggies! Panang curry paste is made with kaffir lime, galangal, lemongrass, and peanuts along with other delicious spices so it makes a great base for a tasty meal.

What you will need

1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

1 block Extra Firm Tofu

8 oz frozen Sliced Bell Peppers

1 Yellow Onion

2 tsp chopped Garlic

3 Tbsp Panang Curry Paste

1 Tbsp Brown Sugar

14 ounce can Coconut Milk

1 Lime

1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro

1 oz fresh Thai Basil

1 lb Microwavable Rice

1 chopped Thai Chili, optional, for extra spice
