Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tofu Panang curry (Gaeng Panang taohu)

    • LFL on June 02, 2021

      4.5 stars Easily the best Thai coconut curry I’ve ever made. We stir-fried veggies as well as tofu before adding the sauce from this (made separately). The results went beyond the typical Thai restaurant curry and this was just stellar. It’s worth it to purchase authentic Thai ingredients if you can. The curry is intensely sweet and salty so be prepared for skyrocketing sugar and sodium. The portions are small and I recommend doubling them. You probably don’t need much more sauce but more of the other stuff (veggies and/or tofu) is essential IMO. There’s a slight undertone of bitterness that I put down to the one change we made. Because we couldn’t find lesser galangal we substituted it with more greater galangal in the curry paste. The author’s website says not to do that, to leave it out instead, so I think the next time we make the curry paste we’ll do that.

  • Glass noodle salad with tofu (Yum woon sen taohu)

    • Livia on December 30, 2021

      U didn't have the golden mountain seasoning sauce so instead used light soy sauce + vegetable bouillon + sugar as suggested here: https://www.thespruceeats.com/golden-mountain-sauce-secret-thai-sauce-3217234 I used 2 nests of noodle as the quantity seemed too little. I increased quantities x4 and it's a nice lunch for 3-4 although I would use less onion and sugar next time

    • jenburkholder on May 26, 2022

      This was good, although likely hampered by our approximations of the proportions (too much celery!!). Used one long red Chile and an Indian green chile, since we didn’t have birds eyes, and that was a good spice level for us. Omitted enoki mushrooms and added edamame.

  • Tofu stewed in Thai gravy (Taohu song krueng)

    • jenburkholder on January 02, 2021

      I liked this with reservations. It needed a bit more seasoning and balance, and the sauce didn’t really tighten. Plus, the instructions are confusing - she has you smash things (i.e. not chop) as though for a broth, but never tells you to strain and keeps adding ingredients, so who knows. We removed the aromatics. It was good though, flavorwise. Still not sure I would repeat.

  • Crispy tofu salad with Thai herbs (Yum taohu krob samoon prai)

    • jenburkholder on June 01, 2021

      This was completely delicious. We added Thai basil - strongly recommended, it was a great addition. Aromatic, tart, sweet, tasted like Southeast Asia in a bowl. Will repeat.
