Thought I Heard

Thai Green Beans and Tofu

 

Time for another installment of Secret Recipe Club!  This month I was assigned two (2!!!) SRC blogs, so double the fun and double the cooking.  To read my other entry for secret recipe club please go here for an awesome sweet potato side dish.  My first assignment brought me to Sara’s Cupcake Muffin blog.  Originally I planned to go for one of the many delicious desserts Sara has, but in the end I kept going back to her savory dishes.   For the longest time I thought I was going to attempt her French Onion Tart, but since I’m suppose to be avoiding rich cheeses I decided to be a good girl and avoid the dairy temptation. I checked out a few more recipes before finally deciding to try her Thai Green Beans with Tofu, which wound up being the PERFECT choice.  I had to make a few changes to the recipe for dietary purposed, so be sure to check out Sara’s blog for her original recipe.

I plan on trying this recipe again with the red curry paste that Sara used, but that will have to wait until my husband is out for the evening since I could not find a peanut free version.  I debated adding a yellow curry paste instead, but decided to just skip that step since I wasn’t sure what yellow curry would do to the profile.  These green beans reminded both of us of our favorite take out place, except much crispier which is a huge bonus.  I have a feeling these green beans are going to make frequent appearances on our menu, since they could easily be adapted to go with soba noodles or pad thai.

Would also like to take this time to wish Sara a happy birthday, though I’m not sure if I’m early or late.

  1. So glad you liked the recipe! These green beans are definitely one of my favorites…I agree, they taste like take out but with better texture! 🙂 And thank you for the happy birthday wishes! 🙂
