Veg. Curry w/ Tofu & Mango, Guest veganchef

I do like this recipe. It's easy to make and you can substitute ANY vegies you have. I made it w/ bamboo shoots, asparagus, celery, mushrooms, etc. AND 1 fresh mango cut up. The only thing it needed (in my opinion) was at least one more tbsp. of the RED curry paste as it had very little 'zing' to it. I also simmered it in the wok for at least 20 min. total. I'm definitely making it again b/c BOTH my husband & I liked it!
