Coconut Crusted Tofu Bites with Creamy Green Curry Dipping Sauce for Cara’s Clean Eating Party!

Crispy Coconut Tofu with Dipping Sauce from Diet, Dessert and Dogs

It’s holiday season–and what works better at the holidays than a holiday PARTY?  My friend Cara is hosting a full month of festivities in the form of a Clean Eating Cocktail Party on her blog, with a new recipe for party food (you know–appetizers, finger foods, snacky stuff and yummy sweet treats) every day this month!

Well, today is my day to contribute to the buffet table! I decided to make something I’ve been dreaming up for a long while–these Coconut-Crusted Tofu Bites with Creamy Green Curry Dipping Sauce. I was served little appetizers on Chinese spoons a couple of years ago at a wedding, and I just couldn’t forget them. I combined my idea for this bite-sized fusion dish of crispy cubes of tofu and a creamy hot dipping sauce with the one-bite-per-spoon presentation and came up with one of my favorite appetizers of all time.

Please hop over to Cara’s blog for the recipe–and join the party!

  1. They look wonderful and very classy sitting nestled in their spoons :)

  2. Mmm…I want to be invited to a party at your house!

  3. These look brilliant – I love the idea of coconut in the coating :)

  4. Ricki, I love your stories, you seriously took me right to that party! Love this recipe too and just might have to try it for dinner one night :)

  5. I agree with Jacqueline – these little coconut treats look utterly amazing! Who wouldn’t want to scoop them up and eat them straight from the spoon! Marvellous creation & arrangement!

  6. What a fun appetizer! They are certainly unique, and I love the look of those crispy tofu squares. Seems like the perfect thing to save for New Year’s parties- I can never figure out what to serve for that event, having so few “traditional” foods.

  7. This sounds so good Ricki! Love anything coconut and curry! Off to check out the recipe…

  8. Gorgeous pictures! I also love little appetizers served on Chinese spoons. Going to check out the recipe now…

  9. Wow, these look so elegant! I’m sure they are absolutely delish.

    • Thanks so much, Sondi! They’re perfect for a dinner party if you want to visually impress your guests. ;) And I loved popping them in my mouth!
