    1. 1
      Chop tofu into small cubes and wrap into two paper towels and place something heavy on top (to get most of the water out) for 10-15 minuets.
    2. 2
      Place in bowl and pour enough sauce to cover all of tofu.
    3. 3
      Cover and place in fridge for 1-4 hours(I like lots of flavor and spice so I went four hours).
    4. 4
      Heat small sauce pan to about medium.
    5. 5
      Pour in marinaded tofu and let sizzle tossing every few minutes.(cook for about 10 minuets)(may want to add more sauce in the process).

      my wife and i are on a constant search for low fat, low carb vegetarian meals -- this hit the spot -- my wife who normally does not like spicy loved it and me who loves spicy didn't need to add anything to it -- thanks for sharing

      This was my first time making tofu. . .so proud of myself! This was a tasty and filling dinner. My tofu didn't pick up the flavors from the sauce as much as I would have liked though. I used Salt Free Peanut Satay Sauce for the sauce for marinating; I doubled the recipe and then added extra water to the leftovers and poured it over the top of the plate for a boost of flavor. Served it with a side of broccoli for a nice healthy dinner this evening. Thanks!

      Wow, this was really good! My husband and I just yummed it up. I used Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce for the peanut sauce, and it was delicious. You're right about the spinach--it really goes well with the tofu. The firm tofu I bought was still too soft even after pressing, so I may try extra-firm next time and see if it is less prone to disintigrating. Thanks for posting, Veganized[ty]!
