A Journey to Thailand with the Global Fusion Taste Team

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.

Each week, WorldFoods gives us a destination and ideas of what to make. Since Week One took us to Thailand, we couldn’t resist going for the Thai Masaman Curry Ready to Pour Sauce for our meal. If you don’t know what Masaman Curry is, you are truly missing out. It’s Mac’s favorite Thai dish with veggies and rice. The curry itself is a delicious blend of coconut milk, cardamom pods, peanuts/cashews and potatoes with sweet and fragrant spices like cinnamon and star anise to name a few. 

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.

The sauce was delicious and was a nice compliment to the tofu and spinach. The flavors were balanced and taste was light and happily absent was the strange coating that you may get with other ready-to-pour sauces. We were really pleased. Now, we cannot wait for our next culinary adventure with the team!

  1. That looks lovely. I am a Fusion Taste team member in the UK and also on a healthy eating plan also. Just made a Pad Thai using the WorldFoods noodle sauce. I love Massaman curry so spicy. Thanks

  2. Oh, I would so totally love those those sauces, every single one. I'm so jealous that you had that Thai Masaman Curry sauce. Oh my gosh, it looks and sounds delicious. Congrats and great job on the recipe. It's fantastic.
