Description

This baked peanut tofu is marinated in a delicious peanut sauce that gives the tofu an amazing flavor and crispy coating. Just pair with rice and a veggie side for a full meal!


Ingredients

  • 1 16oz package of extra-firm tofu, pressed to remove liquid
  • to serve: rice of choice and veggies

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup hot water
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon miso paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (add more for more spice)

Instructions

  1. Once tofu has been pressed, chop into 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Add peanut butter, water, tamari, rice vinegar, miso paste and red pepper flakes into a bowl and whisk until smooth. You can also use a blender for this.
  3. Pour the sauce over the tofu cubes and toss to cover all the pieces. Marinate the tofu in peanut sauce and place in a covered container in the fridge for at least an hour. I marinated mine for about 5-6 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place marinated tofu on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake for 30-40 minutes, flipping once around the 15 minute mark. Remove from oven and serve tofu with sides of choice. I like to serve it with rice and some sort of veggie. I also like adding a little Sriracha on top for extra heat.
