Ingredients

  • 425 g firm tofu block drained
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 4 cloves garlic large
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 spring onion

Instructions

  • Drain tofu: Use paper towels to soak up dripping fluid and wrap tofu in paper towels. Place tofu in tray. Using a heavy pot or collection of plates, place on top of tofu for 15 minutes, to drain excess fluid
  • Add peanut butter, soy sauce, water, garlic and Sriracha sauce in small blender. Blend until creamy and set aside
  • Unwrap tofu and cut into small cubes (1 inch)
  • Add tofu cubes to spicy marinade sauce and gently mix to coat pieces. Marinate for 15 minutes. Marinate for longer for more intense flavor
  • Finely chop onion and set aside
  • Heat oil in large skillet. Fry tofu pieces for 5 minutes, on medium/high heat, until brown on all sides. Use tongs to turn pieces gently
  • Remove from pan, garnish with onion and serve immediately. For more spice, adjust amount of Sriracha sauce

Notes

  • Prepare the tofu the night before to minimise prep time
  • Adjust the spiciness by adding more or less sriracha
  • Use low sodium soy sauce to reduce salt intake
  • The tofu will store well in the fridge or freezer
