I grew up with a mom who was vegetarian and a dad who was not. Therefore, I felt I had the best of both worlds. When Grumpy and I got together, it took a little convincing to get him to eat vegetarian meals. He fought it for a long time until the day I made him General Tso’s Tofu. Then he was hooked. He loved the flavor of the sauce and the tofu had a “crispness” to it that appealed to him. When I make tofu for Grumpy now, I don’t get resistance, but I wasn’t sure how he would react to the coconut curry tofu in this recipe as he has always been very vocal about not liking curry. I made sure to put a lot of texture and a little sweetness in the ingredients to make it more appealing to him. I do believe this recipe made a Coconut Curry Tofu Bowl lover out of him!
