Broccoli and Tofu With Spicy Peanut Sauce

Broccoli and Tofu With Spicy Peanut Sauce created by fawn512

This is a really yummy vegetarian dinner option. Even my non-vegetarian husband said it was great. Don't neglect to freeze/thaw/press the tofu as this will give the tofu a better, chewier texture. For additional flavor you can marinate the tofu in a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil.

    This is a great recipe, which I've used many times over the last 25 years. It's lifted whole from The Enchanted Broccoli Forest, by Mollie Katzen, of the Moosewood Collective.

    This was very good. My 2 year old loved it! I did make a few changed though. I use match stick cut carrots instead of broccoli, cashews and added some cilantro and lime juice at the end. It really toned down the vinegar and balanced out the flavor nicely.

    I signed up just to tell you I loved this dish. I only had tofu and broccoli in the fridge so I typed that into the search engine and this recipe came up. I had to change it as I didn't have everything on hand. I used honey instead of black strap, half the onion, and no cayenne pepper. I also substituted lemon for the cider vinegar. It was terrific and my husband loved it as well.
