What's for lunch today?

Thai Green Curry with Tofu over Brown Jasmine Rice

I love Trader Joe's, I find so many unique and healthy items at great prices. I saw TJ's had a jar of Thai Green Curry Simmer sauce so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm usually let down by pre-made sauces, but this one was different! It was spicy, creamy from the coconut milk, and I could really taste the lemongrass in it! I made a big batch for lunch for the whole week. To make it was super simple, quick and easy to whip up! You can use any vegetables you like, even frozen vegetables. I used broccoli, wild mushrooms, red bell pepper, onion and garlic, then added some baked tofu and TJ's edamame shells for protein. I served it over TJ's brown jasmine rice which tastes just as good as white rice. I measured the rice before I cooked it to make sure I was making exactly 5 servings and divided it up evenly into 5 tupperware containers. One serving is 423 calories, 22 grams of protein, 7 grams of fiber. I used the whole jar of sauce but you could lower the calorie and fat count by using less. Just be sure to not microwave it on full power when reheating to retain the flavor.
