Coconut Thai Vegetable Curry - Just a little Something I prepared for dinner last night.I love Thai dishes, but I just don't want to spend a grip when you go out to a good Thai restaurant. You can whip up a quick dish at home with one little shortcut. Check the rough recipe.
Rough Recipe: In an oven, set on broil, roast tofu that has been cut into cubes. You can season with sesame oil, black pepper and salt. As it roasts, the tofu will incorporate those flavors. Once the tofu is golden brown, remove from oven and reserve. Next, roast eggplant that has been cut into cubes as well. I like to coat the eggplant with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then reserve to the side. In a frying pan, add some olive oil and sauté green onions, red and yellow peppers and then reserve.
Okay, so here is the shortcut. You can find some good thai curry paste at your local Asian market. The paste has quite a few ingredients and it saves some time when you purchase the paste so that you don't have to make it from...

This dish was inspired by one of my visits to a cool little spot in Atlanta called, the SoundTable, a few weeks ago. They offer an appetizer that is made with cauliflower and brussels sprouts. Operating from no recipe, I tried to recreate this dish and bam! I think I have a winner. In my version, I decided to use the amazing purple cauliflower just to shake things up a bit.
Here is the Rough Recipe: Cut brussels sprouts in half and reserve to the side. Next, cut up cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces. Combine the ingredients in a bowl and add olive oil, paprika, ground pepper, a dash of himalayan salt, and liquid amino acid. Pre-heat your oven and then place a skillet inside the oven to heat up.
Make sure that the oven is set at BROIL LOW. And then roast for 30 minutes. Once it is done roasting place all contents in a bowl. Spicy Vinaigrette Dressing - In a bowl, combine black pepper, rice wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, agave, paprika, and a touch of salt.
