Recipe by Nolita_Food

A very simple dish. My mom says this is usually served in Buddhist temples, but there they have to grind their own peanut.

Simple, easy, and tasty! I first sautéed the tofu cubes, to give them some texture, and I added a bit of chile garlic sauce while reducing the sauce, to give it a little kick. I also threw in a wee bit of cornstarch slurry, to thicken the sauce a bit more, at the very end.
