Tofu is one of my favorite foods, rich in protein and no need to worry about calories or fat. Sweet potatoes and green beans are also my most loved vegetables. They were cooked together in the creamy coconut milk and red curry paste, so delicious and flavorful. I shared this recipe with several friends, they all loved them and gave the rave reviews back.
