Red Thai curry paste, which flavors this dish, is a convenient blend of chile peppers, garlic, lemongrass and galanga (a root that's similar in flavor to ginger). It can pack a lot of heat, so be sure to taste as you go. Look for the curry paste in jars or cans in the Asian section of the supermarket or specialty store. Make it a Meal: Ladle the stew over rice to soak up every bit of the delicious sauce.

Prep: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

    canola oil, divided
  • 1 14-ounce package
    extra-firm tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes

    lite coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup
    vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1-2 teaspoons
    red Thai curry paste
  • 1/2 pound
    green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon
    brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons
    lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/3 cup
