Thai Coconut Curry Vegetables with Tofu

The first time I tried Thai food, I fell in love. Since then I have created a few recipes to emulate the dishes I have come to love. This is my version of Thai red curry. People really enjoy this dish! Ingredients 1 (14–16-ounce) block of tofu, cubed and baked* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil…

Kale-Cucumber Salad with Citrus-Mint Dressing

The consistency of the pancakes will vary depending on whether you shred or grate the veggies. I usually shred the vegetables with a box shredder. You can also use a food processor…
