2. Red Curry and Veggies

So, we know the key to controlling high blood pressure with food is cutting sodium. But sodium so often equals flavor, right? Not necessarily. This red curry and vegetable dish is both healthy and delicious.

For this recipe, you’re going to need a few things from the store.

– 4 tsp of canola oil
– 1/2 pound green beans
– 1 pound sweet potatoes, cut into cubes
– 14-ounce package of tofu, cut into cubes
– 14 ounce can of lite coconut milk
– 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
– 1.5 tsp red Thai curry paste
– 2 teaspoons lime juice

Once you have your ingredients together, the cooking part is so easy. Heat two tsp of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add tofu and brown for about seven minutes. Put on a plate. Use the same pan and add two tsp. of olive oil. Add sweet potatoes and brown for five minutes. Add in coconut milk, curry paste, and broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer covered for four minutes or until tender. Add the pre-cooked tofu and green beans. Stir occasionally for about three minutes. Stir in the lime juice. Serve over steamed rice, if desired.
