Easy lemongrass and coconut curry - this delicious vegan vegetable and tofu curry is really quick and simple to make and so full of flavour. It is also a healthy, high protein meat free meal.
Heat 1 Tbsp of the olive oil in a large pan and add the garlic, spring onions, red pepper and chilli. Fry gently for about five minutes until softened. (If you are using garlic and chilli pastes rather than fresh then add them in the next step instead).
Add the lemongrass and ginger pastes (plus garlic and chilli ones if using), garam masala and turmeric and fry for another minute.
Add the coconut milk and crumble in the stock cube. Bring up to a simmer.
Add the tenderstem broccoli and edamame and simmer for about 10 minutes until the broccoli is tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the curry is cooking, place the cornflour in bowl with a little salt. Add the cubed tofu and toss to coat. (Coating the tofu with cornflour is optional).
Heat the remaining Tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and add the tofu. Cook over a medium heat, turning every now and again until golden on all sides.
Stir the tofu into the curry and serve with rice.
The tofu I buy (Tofoo brand) comes in 280g packets which I realise is a slightly odd quantity; just use whatever weight the brand you buy comes in - enough for two people.
