Short on time doesn't mean short on flavors. This Tofu Buddha Bowl is literally made in 15 minutes. A perfect weeknight dinner. I made this on one of the snow days last week. A warm comforting bowl of Thai flavors loaded of rice, curried vegetables and tofu. Not only is this bowl vegan & gluten-free, but is loaded with protein and healthy saturated fats. I had some left over basmati rice which I used for this preparation. Although Basmati rice has a low glycemic index, I am sure you can surely make this recipe healthier by using quinoa, or any other grain you prefer.

If you follow TBRTM, you will already know by now that I love Thai flavors. However, I am trying to get Little A to enjoy it too but seems like he prefers the Chinese flavors. I am still going to keep trying and I am sure one day he will relish these flavors. I mean, how can someone not enjoy Thai food, atleast that is what I think? Although sometimes I think, Little A has something got to do with the color of the food. He enjoys red & yellow curries the most. Next is brown (mix lentils) and green curries.  He loves his green pasta sauce however, this curry was a little less green than it should be as I had limited cilantro. Trust me that makes a difference in the taste as well as the color. Check out the color of this Thai Green Coconut Dressing. This curry is nothing but a diluted version of the Green Coconut Dressing. I just watered it down and brought it to boil and then poured it over the rice vegetables and tofu.

What I love about this recipe is that it comes together very easily and is pretty quick. The sauce is ready by just pulsing the ingredients in a blender. Just water it down and your curry is ready. while the curry comes to a boil, pan smear the tofu and throw in some raw carrots and bell peppers. They add in a perfect crunch to the delicious flavors, apart from consuming raw vegetables. The tofu and the curry are a great source of protein and good fats. It's a hit hit always. Everything I have made something with the Thai Green Coconut Dressing, it's always been yum!!!  Try it yourself.
