    DisasterInTheKitchen's Note:

    This is a recipe I came up with after going to Veggie Heaven for the first time here in Austin. I say that because I've been here for 4 years already, and not being a vegetarian it just didn't occur to me to go. I was so amazed, I went back again the same week. Well, this tofu recipe doesn't add up to what they have there, but I was definitely inspired. I think it's delicious and I hope you do too! Preparation time includes time to drain tofu.

      The sauce gives a nice taste for the tofu and it's fairly quick to prepare. Next time we might add a bit more peanut butter for a nuttier flavour.
