The day before yesterday when I was shopping at Weaver Street Market Coop, I found products from a new company called Hodo that looked appealing (and they were on sale). I bought their Thai curry nuggets as well as braised tofu with Chinese five-spice. The nuggets are great!
They have very nice flavor and a chewy texture. They are great right out of the package, but today I decided to cook them with vegetables and red curry paste, and serve with brown rice noodles (my wife and daughter were away so I could cook tofu, which my wife has problems digesting, since I was cooking for myself).
The nuggets are a bit high in fat; the whole 8 ounce package has about 17 1/2 grams of fat. For tonight’s meal, I used maybe a third of the package, so will call this about 6 grams of fat, which isn’t bad.
I simply sauteed (with no oil) some onion, garlic, kale, bell pepper, and the nuggets, mixing in red curry paste. I served with brown rice noodles topped with black sesame seeds and tamari sauce.
Ideas for the future
I love this new tofu product and only wish that it were lower in fat. I may contact the company and see if they might consider a baked or even air fried product. I should continue to make dishes like this when I’m not cooking for my wife, but don’t need a curry paste. Perhaps a hint of lemon and miso dressing may be nice.
