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

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 198.44 g package firm tofu
  • thai spicy peanut sauce (from bottle or from other zarr recipes, I prefer Melissa's organic "flavor your tofu" sauce availabl)
  • fresh salad spinach
  • 1 cucumber

Directions

  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. Place in bowl and pour enough sauce to cover all of tofu.
  3. Cover and place in fridge for 1-4 hours(I like lots of flavor and spice so I went four hours).
  4. Heat small sauce pan to about medium.
  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).
  6. Prepare cucumber and spinach on plate, place cooked tofu in the center.
