Broccoli and Tofu With Spicy Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by casemnor

This is a really yummy vegetarian dinner option. Even my non-vegetarian husband said it was great. Don't neglect to freeze/thaw/press the tofu as this will give the tofu a better, chewier texture. For additional flavor you can marinate the tofu in a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil.

This was very good. My 2 year old loved it! I did make a few changed though. I use match stick cut carrots instead of broccoli, cashews and added some cilantro and lime juice at the end. It really toned down the vinegar and balanced out the flavor nicely.
