• 1/4 c. chopped peanuts

• 1/4 c. chopped cilantro


To toast coconut: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut onto baking sheet and toast until it begins to turn a light caramel brown and smells nutty, about 1 to 3 minutes. Remove and set aside.

To prepare tofu: Slice the tofu into ½-inch cubes.

In a medium skillet, whisk together the coconut milk, stock, honey, curry powder and garlic. Set over medium heat and bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute.

Stir in the tofu and continue cooking until the tofu has absorbed about half of the liquid, about 10 minutes. Stir in the green onions. Season to taste with the lemon juice and soy sauce. Serve over rice garnished with the coconut, peanuts and cilantro.
