PEANUT SATAY TOFU
I’d been wanting to recreate this recipe for so so long after first trying a satay style sauce when I was working at Buddhafield Cafe, and finally got round to it! So many of you enjoyed my lil insta story of my creation and wanted the recipe, so thought I’d write it up quickly so you can all try it!!
1. Cut up roughly 200g of firm tofu (I used half a packet of the Cauldron brand) into thin slices. If you have time, I would recommend pressing your tofu overnight to get rid of water, but in this case I didn’t!
2. Make your marnade - I put some soy sauce, water, powdered garlic, chilli & paprika in a large bowl, added the tofu and coated it, letting it sit and absorb for as long as you have - I did for about 20mins but it isn’t really necessary.
3. Place on a baking rack or lined tray and bake at 180 degrees C for around 15-20 mins, depending on how large the peices are and how crispy you like it! just keep checking your oven.
4. To make the peanut sauce, add a heaped tbsp of pb to a small bowl with around the same amount of soy sauce, squeeze of maple syrup, squeeze of sriracha (optional) and some garlic powder. Water down to your desired consistency.
Stir fry your favourite noodles and vegetables - today I used leftover soba noodles, broccoli, mushroom, chickpeas and edemame from last nights dinner and top with the tofu! Drizzle on a generous amount of peanut sauce and sprinkle with some sesame seeds if you’re feelin fancy.
If you do recreate, don’t forget to tag me in your photos!
