Like, really lazy.
Like, so lazy that some days it's just cold tofu covered in soy sauce. Yes, that's soy covered in soy kinda lazy.
That means that, while I love food, I also appreciate easy-to-manage meals that require the fewest number of dishes.
I've been more aware of carbohydrates since COVID-19 has us all a few steps away from bags of chips at all times. Here is a low-carb, high protein/fat recipe to keep you full, fuel your muscles, and still be semi-lazy.
One Pot Curry
1 Block of tofu, drained cut into inch pieces (or whatever size you prefer)
1 Yellow onion, diced to preferred size
2-3 Gloves of garlic, minced or chopped
1 Can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
2 Cans coconut milk ( I like full fat, but you can certainly use the lighter option)
2-3 Carrots, peeled and chopped
Handful of mushrooms, sliced
2T oil of choice (I prefer EVOO or unrefined coconut oil)
Yellow curry paste (or red or green, if you prefer. If you don’t have paste on hand, you can always use curry powder which is a very different flavor but still wonderful!)
1-2T Liquid aminos (or Tamara/Soy Sauce).
Fresh or powdered ginger to taste
Cooked Quinoa or Rice (optional)
Pan fry cubed tofu in a deeper pan. (One that will eventually hold all of the things. Yes, I’m a one-pan-wonder.) You can fry tofu using your oil of choice, or dry. Depending on your tofu of choice, some dry fry really well!
Add in carrots, diced onion, garlic (you may want those 2T of oil for this one), and
liquid aminos. Saute until fragrant and onion seems soft.
Toss in the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. I prefer this soup style, so I don't toss it over rice. If you're looking for a more healthful option, try serving over quinoa!
If the coconut milk appears to be too thick, add 1/2-1cup of water as it's simmering. This won't be an issue if you're using a lighter coconut milk.
Serve, enjoy, go take a nap, go for a run.
