Easy Vegan Red Thai Vegetable Curry with Tofu
Make this easy Thai vegetable curry recipe using store-bought red curry paste for a quick and easy vegan dinner. The vegetables are merely a suggestion, as just about any vegetables will work just fine in a simple Thai vegetable curry. Serve paired with steamed white rice or another whole grain.

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!
