"This was very good!! I left the tofu/vegetables in when adding the coconut milk for flavor (I used almond milk). I also doubled the seasoning/curry powder/garlic. Instead of salt I used garlic salt seasoning. I mixed part rice/part couscous for variety. I also definitely had more than one serving..."

"Love this recipe, has become a staple. I usually add a can of chickpeas and cut the rice in half to add more protein & they go great with the curry flavor. I've never cooked with coconut milk prior to this, so was concerned, but it is sooooo good!"

"I added mushrooms and more garlic, a little salty, I'll use less next time. Its much better than the usual tofu sandwhiches I make."
