Tofu Peas and Peanut Sauce

Final-web

I’ve had a very busy week so I need a meal that was quick (and cheap) to make. I did this and it was very good and filling! It was the perfect combo of savory creamy with pops of crispiness from the peas.

I am pairing this meal with a hot new track from Mr. Carmack, because like this sauce its nuts!

Tofu Peas and Peanut Sauce

One package of sprouted tofu (I like to use the kind not in water cause it’s easier)
3 cloves of garlic
3 green onions
1 Jalapeno Pepper
2 tablespoons of Liquid Aminos
2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
1 lime
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
2 tablespoons of Liquid Aminos
1/4 cup of water
3 garlic cloves minced
2 tablespoons of toasted sesame oil
Fresh peas
Rice
Sriracha (optional)

First, cook some rice. I have a Southern zhirl trick on how to cook rice that does not involve measuring. If you are interested hit me up on the comments section and I will make a post on it. But for now just cook it according to the package instructions

Next we are going to make a marinade for the tofu. Take three cloves of the garlic and the white parts of the onion and mince them. Mix them in a container with a lid with the rice wine vinegar, Liquid Aminos and half of the juice from the lime. Chop up the tofu and toss it in the container. Cover the container with the lid toss around for a bit so each piece of tofu gets some of the marinade on it and set aside.

Now while the tofu is getting sauced we are going to make the peanut sauce. Combine two tablespoons of peanut butter (sidenote: I make my own which is creamy and all natural. Use what you like but chunky may be a little funky! Hey I made a rhyme!) Liquid Aminos water garlic and the other half of the lime. Stir over medium heat until everything is incorporated and the peanut butter is melted. The end result should be creamy. Set aside.

Now the tofu should be ready to cook. Put the toasted sesame oil in the pan and cook at medium-medium/high heat. Toasted sesame oil has a really great flavor and really adds to the dish. Cook the tofu until it is browned on both sides.

Now you can assemble everything. Add the rice to a bowl then the tofu and drizzle the peanut sauce on top. Top with fresh peas (if a pea is fresh you will not have to cook it, it is perfect as is!) And some chopped green onions (the green part) I like to finish this with Sriracha but if you can’t handle the spice you can skip it.

Easy Peasy!
