A few weeks ago, we approached by the awesome folks at WorldFoods to join their Global Fusion Taste Team, using their Asian-inspired sauces to make dishes from wonderful flavors of countries like Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia. They provided us with sauces including Masaman Curry and Creamy Sweet Chili Kaffir Lime. We couldn’t wait to start cooking.

As some of you know, we’re on a weight loss mission (we’re at about 60lbs total loss to date). So we modified our approach to a big steamy bowl of Masaman Curry. Let us just say that the WorldFoods products are dairy-free and vegan-friendly. They are low in calories, fat and sugar. So in moderation and the right combination of flavors and sides, using these products are great while really healthy.
We decided to use WorldFoods‘ Thai Massaman Curry Ready to Pour Sauce as a marinade with sliced tofu. The tofu sat in the marinade for about 30 minutes, then it was pan fried sans oil. While the tofu was cooked, we sauteed some chopped spinach with bell peppers, carrots, onions and lemongrass, seasoned with a bit of black pepper. Everything was put together atop of a bed of fluffy brown rice.
