Peanut Ginger Baked Tofu

Served with Sesame Kale and baked yam

I make this dish a million times a week and always post photos.  I've also used this recipe in several cooking classes BUT I've never released the secret recipe publicly, UNTIL NOW.

You're welcome.

Peanut Ginger Baked Tofu

1 package of extra firm tofu, cut into 4 or 5 ‘steaks’
¼ cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
2 teaspoon maple syrup
2 Tbsp umeboshi plum vinegar
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1-2 teaspoons hot pepper oil or paste
1/3 cup water (or more for consistency)

The secret ingredients

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place tofu ‘steaks’ flat down in pan, leaving ¼ to ½ inch between them.  Put aside.
  3. Put all of the other ingredients in a small pan on a low heat.
  4. Using a whisk, mix the ingredients until they are smooth.
  5. Pour evenly over the tofu and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through.
Make sure you flex your biceps when you serve this dish

Yes, it is that simple.
