Peanut Tofu

For those evenings when you crave the rich flavors of Chinese cuisine but want to keep things plant-based, this Peanut Tofu recipe is a delightful solution. It’s inspired by the classic peanut chicken, offering all the savory goodness with a vegan twist. This dish not only satisfies your Asian cuisine cravings but also adds a wholesome spin with tofu as the star.

Start by pressing extra firm tofu to rid it of excess moisture—this is key for achieving the perfect texture that’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. You’ll want to cut the tofu into bite-sized cubes that are ideal for soaking up the savory peanut sauce, which is the real highlight of this dish.

The sauce itself is a blend of creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, a hint of vinegar, and just the right amount of chili flakes for a little kick. If you’re a fan of bold flavors, don’t hesitate to tweak the chili to your taste. Simmer the tofu in this rich sauce until each piece is thoroughly coated and bursting with flavor.

I recommend serving this peanut tofu over a bed of steamed rice or noodles to make it a meal. It pairs beautifully with stir-fried vegetables like broccoli or bell peppers, adding color and crunch that complement the creamy richness of the sauce.

This peanut tofu recipe is more than just a meal; it’s a quick trip to flavor town, bringing a touch of Chinese culinary tradition to your vegan table. It’s perfect for a cozy night in or for impressing guests with your plant-based cooking prowess. Give it a try and watch it become a new favorite in your kitchen rotation.
