We are suckers for curried everything here at vegan.io. For that particular reason, we are super happy to bring to you our latest creation, curried green beans. A quick fix for either lunch or dinner that will fill your belly and your soul.
This recipe brings together the best of many worlds. I mean, to begin with, we have curry and we can't have enough curry recipes in one lifetime. I used curry paste which I bought at the store because it's incredibly easy and super practical to just grab a jar from the fridge.
Of course, you can always make your own curry paste. It's not as complicated as it might seem. There are some recipes that take as little as 20 minutes to make. We want to keep it quick and simple so we'll leave that recipe for another time.
I would usually say that my favourite thing about any noodle dish is the noodles. But not this time. The green beans are by far what makes this dish so incredibly delicious. And, I really love the extra crunch they add to the dish.
I don't cook green beans that often but I really should. Green beans are tasty, crunchy and super-packed with nutrients. Basically, they are everything we ever wanted a vegetable to be and you can find them all over the world year round.
Green beans are rich in fiber, a great source of vitamin A, C, K, and B6. They have a bunch of minerals such as calcium, silicon, iron, manganese, potassium and copper. All this while being super low in calories and fat and have no cholesterol.
All this translates in a bunch of health benefits that we are happy to reap. Here are a few:
We get all this good stuff from one single vegetable! All we need to add to our curried green beans is a bit of protein. I added smoked tofu which has the perfect flavour to complement this recipe. So make sure you use this kind and not just plain tofu, it makes a big difference.
I usually don't use much oil to cook but I had to make an exception this time. I've tried using less than what's recommended in the ingredient list but I feel the dish comes out a bit dry.
You can always dial it down if you feel it’s too much oil. We need just enough to sautee the green beans and the tofu. The oil you will mix with the noodles, the tofu, and the curried green beans really well.
These curried green beans are ready in 25 minutes. That's nothing considering the incredibly delicious bowl of noodles we get to enjoy!
