Giveaway & Recipe: Coconut Red Curry Peanut Stir Fry

Coconut Red Curry Peanut Stir Fry

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup firm tofu, diced
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 5 cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1.5 cups frozen edamame
  • 1T coconut oil
  • 1T coconut peanut butter (can substitute half coconut butter/half peanut butter or just use peanut butter)- win your own Coconut PB below
  • 1T red curry paste
  • 2T soy sauce, tamari or shoyu
  • 1/2T vegetarian oyster sauce
  • 1T arrowroot powder mixed with 1/4 cup of water
  • 1t garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts

Directions:

  1. In a wok over medium high heat melt the coconut oil and coconut peanut butter together.
  2. Add in the red curry paste and stir fry together for about a minute.
  3. Add in all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the peanuts and cook for 7-10minutes until the vegetables are soft.
  4. Add in the peanuts at the end.  Serve with your favorite rice or noodles.

To make this recipe I used Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil and Coconut Peanut Butter.  The coconut peanut butter is rich and creamy tasting and works really well in this dish.  The peanut butter flavor is not overwhelming but is rather great combined with the coconut.  I found that this is not an easily spreadable butter but is great on warmed foods such as oatmeal, stir fries, noodles, and sweet potatoes.

“Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter is made from organic peanuts and organic coconut. Two ingredients: nothing else! No fillers, no binders, no sweeteners, and no preservatives. The peanuts are 100% organic Valencia peanuts grown organically by family farmers in New Mexico and Texas. Grown in the dry climate of the southwestern United States, these peanuts are certified organic and free from aflatoxins. The dried coconut is certified organic coconut meat from the Philippines from coconuts that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. Together, these premium organic roasted peanuts and the premium organic dried coconut are ground together to make a delicious and nutritious spread!” soucre

Giveaway & Review: Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil

 

 The winner is Averie from Love Veggies and Yoga!  

Congrats! 

Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their Virgin Coconut Oil to sample- it is also organic.  What is great about the gold label brand is that it is made by hand unlike other coconut oils. I love coconut oil and this stuff is great.  I use coconut oil to make a number of raw dishes – my favorite way to use it is in raw macaroons.  I also love to use it in stir fries instead of peanut or canola oil because it gives the stir fry a really great flavor.  Yesterday I actually heated it up and sprinkled it on my kabocha squash before I roasted it and it was delicious.
