My obsession with peanut butter has extended itself to my dinners lately, but once you taste this peanut sauce I think you’ll understand my obsession. Spicy peanut tofu is everything your weeknight meals are missing! Trust me.
There are many way to prepare tofu. I switch off between pan-frying, when I have patience, and baking, when I’m lazy. Personally, I prefer them baked because I find they get crispier that way, and there’s less work involved. For this recipe, I tossed the tofu with cooking spray and stuck it in the oven for 40-45 minutes. The result? crispy AF tofu.
I love this sauce for so many reasons, but mainly because it has the perfect spicy kick to it. You can add some extra crushed peanuts to the sauce for an added crunch, and cut back on the pepper flakes for less spiciness- totally customizable!
This spicy peanut tofu is best served fresh, but if you wanted to reheat it I would add a little extra water to thin out the sauce. I love serving it with brown rice and stir fry veggies, but you can pair it with your favorite grain and veggie of choice!
Can’t wait for you guys to try this one! It’s husband approved, which we all know is the best approval of them all. Be sure to check out my sweet & spicy tofu recipe if you’re looking for more delicious tofu recipes!
