A very simple dish. My mom says this is usually served in Buddhist temples, but there they have to grind their own peanut.
- 5 ounces firm tofu, sliced into bite-size pieces
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter (creamy or crunch, you choose)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Place slice tofu, soy sauce and peanut butter in a small sauce pan.
- Add enough water to cover the tofu nearly fully.
- Let simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens.
- Serve hot with steamed rice.
Simple, easy, and tasty! I first sautÃ©ed 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.
YUM!! I made this one night for a girls' game night. As I was making it, a friend suggested I bake it after I cooked it on the stove. So, I did. For 20 minutes at 350. The edges were just a little crisp. And, it was amazing. I ended up sharing my dinner with everyone at the party. I also added red pepper flakes for a little kick. But, I have already made it again it was so good. Thanks, Nolita!
This was good and I'll use the simple recipe for the sauce with other things, too.
