    This was very good and I didn't even have all of the ingredients. I had to substitute dried cilantro for fresh and granulated garlic for fresh garlic. Can't wait to try it with the fresh ingredients! I used about 3/4 of the coconut milk just cause I like a bit more sauce. Excellent, will make again.

    This was very good!! I left the tofu/vegetables in when adding the coconut milk for flavor (I used almond milk). I also doubled the seasoning/curry powder/garlic. Instead of salt I used garlic salt seasoning. I mixed part rice/part couscous for variety. I also definitely had more than one serving...
