Creamy Almond Coconut Tofu

Creamy Almond Coconut Tofu. There are some days where there is time to ponder a recipe and take hours putting it together, but there are other days where  I have a short attention span for food making when hunger is present.  This dish can be ready to serve in 30 minutes and offers layers of flavor from the fluffy coconut rice topped with the seasoned tofu and creamy almond coconut sauce.  Everyone can call this a dinner or lunch favorite, including the kids!  It is quick, easy, just spicy enough and, did I mention, delicious.  Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
