My Try at Thai….

Do you ever crave something that you never had before???? I find this happening to me quite often.

Have you guys seen the new show Chef Roblé & Co. on Bravo? This guy makes me crave everything from Indian to down south cooking!

On one of his latest episodes he was catering for a Jewish Reggae Singer and the food had to be Thai, Vegan, AND KOSHER! He ended up making a Thai Tofu dish (it looked amazing!) that wowed everybody and I went to bed dreaming of this dish…

I searched the bravo site and thankfully they had the recipe but daaaaaaaaaaamn it was long! So I decided to keep looking for other recipes. I knew that I wanted it to have tofu as the star of the show, but it also had to have peanut butter (“hi my name is mari and I am pbholic”), coconut milk, and last but not least curry…which is strange because for most of my life, I was scared of trying this but when you are a “food and fitness” blogger you need to try new things!

I spent about an hour searching for the perfect dish and actually found exactly what I was looking for on another blog, Devour Destroy

I made a couple of changes (only because I didn’t have all of the ingredients)….but here is my version of Thai Style Peanut, Red Curry, with Tofu and Veggies…

First I used my Kettle bell to drain the tofu! This how trainers cook haha

Then I sautéed the Tofu in Evoo

When it was golden brown, I added chopped red peppers and chives

Then I added Red Curry Paste and Peanut Butter…

Then Coconut Milk and Baby Peas…

I tasted it and noticed that it was still a little bland, so I added splenda, salt, and Szechuan Hot Paste…

After about 5 minutes, I served it over a brown rice and let me tell you people…I was freaking impressed with myself!

  1. Yay for trying Thai food! It's my favorite kind of food. Right up there with Indian. They'd have to duel each other for ultimate favorite though.

  2. I love thai food! And, I think it's awesome that you used your kettle ball to strain the tofu, so smart.
    The only issue with thai food is the coconut milk, which I can't eat :( I tend to leave it out, which is a bummer.

    Love your business card!!! It's perfect for you!

  3. What? A cooking show I don't know about? I'll have to check that out!

    Your dish looks terrific - I always squirt a few drops of sriracha to my dishes to spice them up!

    Happy Holidays Mari! Love the cards too!

  4. Hey! Just found your blog, nice to "meet you"!

    Your dinner looks absolutely amazing! I love the creaminess and flavor that coconut gives to savory dishes...plus good healthy fats. Can't beat it!

  5. I love Thai but I take the shortcut and use one of Trader Joe's pre-made curries and then add it to my protein and veggies. You did a great job, girl!

    And the business card is adorable- I love it!
