Instead of ordering takeout, why not make curry at home! This comforting Thai Red Curry with Tofu and Kabocha Squash is rich and satisfying.
Curry is one of my favorite go-to things to eat. If I had to choose one thing to eat the rest of my life, it would be a good peanut sauce with veggies, tofu, and brown rice noodles. For me, that is comfort food. I can practically drink the sauce. After peanut sauce, I would choose curry. My favorite curry is green, probably because of its sweet flavor, but I love all curries. Consequently, you will find a myriad of curry recipes here, both hot and cold.
For this Thai Red Curry with Tofu and Kabocha Squash I’ve included kabocha squash, red pepper, broccoli, and tofu, but you could use almost any vegetables. I love to eat curry with brown rice noodles, probably because it is always served with rice in the restaurants I eat at, and it’s nice to have something different.
