Coconut Pasta with Crispy Tofu

Creamy Coconut Pasta with Crispy Tofu recipe displayed in a bowl.

Coconut pasta with peas and crispy tofu!

Can’t overstate how good of a combo this is, particularly whenever I’m craving something extra comforting.

In general, I looove tofu and always have a lot of it in my fridge because it’s such a versatile ingredient that can taste delicious when cooked correctly. Although sometimes I snack on it as it is, with just a pinch of salt, but getting creative with it is deffo a much better idea lol.

Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

Instructions

Crispy tofu

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet and cook the tofu for around 15 minutes, rotating frequently, until golden brown on each side.
  • Add the tamari and continue rotating the tofu cubes until fully coated.

Coconut pasta

  • Cook the pasta according to packaging instructions. Meanwhile, cook the garlic in a non-stick frying pan until fragrant, then add the coconut milk and nutritional yeast. Stir to combine, before adding the green peas and salt.
  • Drain the pasta and combine with the sauce, also adding 1/4 cup pasta water.

Notes

If you want to thicken the sauce more, you can add cornstarch.
