  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, grated

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pat tofu dry and add to pan. Cook in a single layer, without stirring, until the pieces turn golden, about 4 minutes. Gently stir and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until golden all over, 4 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk coconut milk, curry paste, lime juice, garlic and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Add avocado oil, mushrooms and scallions to the pan. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms have released their liquid and started to brown, about 5 minutes. Add kale, the sauce mixture and the tofu and cook, stirring, until the kale is wilted, the sauce has thickened and the tofu is heated through, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Add zucchini noodles to the pan and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute. Serve the curry over the noodles.
