Simple, nutritious and tasty. You can use whatever greens are available: Swiss chard, beet greens, turnip greens, etc. Natural peanut butter (without hydrogenated oils) is better (for everything, not just this recipe). If you don't have a jalapeno, or don't like them, you can add some cayenne or some Tabasco sauce to the peanut sauce instead. Frying in peanut oil is key; because of its high smoke point, you can get it screaming hot, which is what is needed to get the tofu nice and crisp.
