Vegan Coconut Dish

cover

The Malibu Farm has been one of my favorite spots in town since I visited it little over a year ago — not only because of it’s absolutely beautiful location at the end of a pier jutting into the Pacific Ocean, but because every single dish on the menu is unreal (and very Insta worthy)! Plus, its all local and organic.

My absolute favorite dish on the menu at The Farm is what they call the “Vegan Coconut”. It’s a bowl of rice, vegetables and tofu drenched in a mildly spicy coconut sauce. It is the most delicious, ultra-healthy meal I’ve ever had. So, of course, once I had the cookbook in hand I immediately searched for that recipe.

In the book, they suggest serving the sauce over rice with shrimp, which I’m sure would be delish as well, but I wanted to share my favorite version of the recipe (the one they serve in-resturant) for all of you who don’t live within a few miles of this culinary paradise!


 

Ingredients

fresh, organic veggies, briefly steamed — DO NOT OVERCOOK (I used green beans, broccoli, red & green peppers, and zucchini)

1 package firm tofu, pan seared until golden

organic brown rice

For the Sauce:

1 can coconut milk

1 serrano pepper

1 half-a-thumb-sized piece of ginger

1 carrot

2 limes

1 clove garlic

3 tbsp. soy sauce

1 cup fresh cilantro

dash salt

Put all of the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend. When ready to serve, heat the sauce up until it’s warm and pour generously over your rice, veggies and tofu in a bowl. Enjoy!
