Vegan and Gluten-Free Thai Red Curry Tofu & Bok Choy Stew (with a Saffron Road giveaway - CLOSED)

Thai Red Curry Tofu & Bok Choy Stew - #vegan and #glutenfree - Get a healthy dinner on the table in under 30 minutes with the help of Saffron Road's all natural simmer sauce.

It's a constant challenge at our house to plan and prepare easy weeknight meals that are also healthy and tasty. In this way I'm sure we are no different than most busy families! With evening sports activities and music lessons to get to, plus homework to be done, how many of us have the time to create complex meals on a daily basis?

The good news is that, with a little planning in advance and a thorough shopping list, we can make healthy family meals in under 30 minutes. Like this vegan, gluten-free Thai Red Curry Tofu & Bok Choy Stew. Put some brown rice (or whatever rice you favour really) into a rice cooker or pot and whip together the stew while it cooks. In under half an hour you have a lovely entree complete with protein and veggies in a delicious sauce.

Saffron Road's line of made-in-the-USA all natural and halal-certified entrees, simmer sauces, broths and more is intended to get dinner on the table quickly without compromising good health. They have a number of vegetarian and vegan options too. The Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce that I used for my recipe is verified non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free and made with all natural ingredients. It's a healthy dinnertime shortcut that you can feel good about feeding to yourself and your family.

The Thai Red Curry Sauce has a coconut milk base with a refreshing blend of lemongrass, ginger and lime juice and a pleasant kick of heat - enough to satisfy my husband, who likes the hot stuff - but not too much for me (I wasn't raised munching on hot peppers with my dinner like he was!)

Here's a look at the simple and wholesome ingredients used in this quick stew. I based the recipe around extra-firm tofu cubes, because I am a committed tofu lover. Add to that some tasty baby bok choy leaves, orange pepper slices, onion, garlic, Saffron Road's Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce and fresh basil for garnish, and you have yourself a tasty, fragrant meal.

I made this recipe primarily for my husband and me, not really expecting the kids to get excited about it (seeing as it's pretty darn healthy and all). To my surprise they both gobbled it up. I even had to talk to them about grabbing chunks of food off the stove with their fingers! It's a good problem to have for a mom, right?

Saffron Road is in the process of introducing their products to Canada (with some products available this month at Whole Foods). You can also find them online at amazon.ca. Which Saffron Road product would you like to try? (Read on for a Saffron Road giveaway!)
