Thai Green Curry Tofu and Basil, made with Campbell's Skillet Sauces

I have to brag for a minute.  My husband is pretty cool.

Since I got pregnant October of last year, he has stepped in, making most dinners for our family. Yes, he works a full-time job and then comes home and cooks a lovely meal for our family!

I'm spoiled.

I'd like to return the favor once in awhile, but with a 4 month old, and 21 month old it's not easy to get dinner ready by the time he gets home....or sometimes at all!

Campbell's Skillet Sauces are a new product that will help busy moms like me who like to cook, but don't have time for making sauces by scratch, whip up a great dinner in no time flat!

Thai Green Curry Tofu with Basil



Ready to wow your family with this simple dish?



I started out with a package of tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes and cooked in 1 Tbsp. of Peanut Oil in a Medium-High skillet until browned, approximately 10 minutes.

* Tip: When you take the tofu out of the package, wrap in a paper towel for a minute and squeeze lightly, to absorb some of the moisture.


I added one zucchini for color. More importantly, it's a good source of fiber and vitamins C and A. Gotta love your veggies, people!


Open pouch and pour Campbell's Thai Green Curry Skillet Sauce into pan.


Added some fresh basil from my garden, for a great fresh flavor. Yum.

Stir and reduce heat to low, bring to a simmer, cook about 2 minutes or until ingredients are hot.  



McKinney Mommas' Thai Green Curry Tofu w/ Basil

We served our Thai Green Curry Tofu with Basil made with Campbell's Skillet Sauces over white rice and sprinkled with some black sesame seeds on top.

I can't believe how easy this was to whip together, and a great change up from all the same flavors we usually cook with! 

Tasting Notes
  • Honestly, we were both surprised that Campbell's came through with a pretty authentic green curry flavor. We both really liked the taste of the Thai Green Curry sauce, and it had a fantastic spicy kick to it! 
  • CAUTION: Probably too spicy for most children. Not for the faint of heart - but that's what's great about curry!

  • The sauce was a bit on the sweet side for our liking.  If it's any consolation, our household typically lowers any sugar content in recipes as we just don't like things very sweet. So, in general others may not agree. 

After this positive experience in the kitchen, cooking with Campbell's Skillet Sauces I can't wait to try the Marsala with Mushrooms & Garlic!
