  • 2 tsp. canola or corn oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil

  1. Put the tofu on a large plate. Sprinkle the tofu on both sides with 1 tablespoon curry powder. Using your fingertips, gently press the curry powder so it adheres to the tofu.
  2. In a large microwaveable bowl, microwave the vegetables and water on 100 percent power (high) for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are almost tender-crisp but still have some crunch. Pour off any remaining water.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the tofu slices in a single layer for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until browned. Transfer to a separate large plate. Cover loosely to keep warm.
  4. In the same skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the onion for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  5. Stir in the vegetables and garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring constantly.
  6. Stir in the coconut milk, chili garlic sauce, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder. Bring to a boil, still over medium-high heat. Spoon the vegetable mixture over the tofu.
