Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring 4 cups water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

  • While the rice is cooling, slice tofu and place on a plate with cloth napkins or paper towels between the slices. Place another plate on top. Set a 3- to 5-pound weight on top. Press tofu for 20 to 30 minutes; drain and discard any accumulated liquid.

  • Heat a dry, nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Add tofu and cook slowly, pressing with a spatula to release any remaining liquid, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side. Remove and set aside.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, onion, and remaining 1/4 cup water; cook, tossing frequently, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add coconut milk and curry paste; simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Add tofu and toss to combine.

  • Serve over warm rice. Squeeze lime juice over top and garnish with basil.
