Thai Peanut Sauce

Posted Apr 16 2010 7:47am

I was really in the mood for some Asian cuisine last night. I think one of my favorite things to get at a Thai restaurant (besides drunken noodles of course) are the spring rolls with peanut sauce dipping sauce. Mainly for the peanut sauce ;) If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you probably know that I am a peanut butter addict. It is by far my favorite food and I also try to incorporate it in different ways into my meals.

This masterpiece was born…

Tofu with Thai Peanut Sauce (Adapted from Tyler Florence)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter (I used 365 organic)
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (I used wheat-free tamari)
  • 2 teaspoons red chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar (I used honey)
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts, for garnish (Didn’t have any)

Directions

  1. Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, red chili paste, brown sugar, and lime juice in a food processor or blender. Puree to combine. While the motor is running, drizzle in the hot water to thin out the sauce, you may not need all of it.

Then I made the Tofu.

I started by pressing it and cutting it into chunks. Then I marinated it for about 20 minutes in the peanut sauce.

I baked it for 40 minutes, flipping halfway through.

I served it over a bed of spinach and udon noodles. Also served with a side of roasted vegetables.

And that counts as a vegetarian meal for my Earth Day Green Week Challenge !
