Ingredients

  • 15.5 - 16 oz organic extra firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon Toasted Sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos, Tamari or soy sauce
  • 10 drops monkfruit extract (~2 tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons creamy nut butter (peanut, almond or sunflower seed)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • veggies of choice

Cooking Utensils

  • medium mixing bowl
  • large non-stick pan or skillet

Directions

Oven Method:

Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Wrap tofu in a clean, absorbent towel and set something heavy on top – like a cast-iron skillet – to press out excess moisture.

Once the oven is preheated, unwrap tofu and cut into small cubes. Arrange on the lined baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 25-30 minutes or until puffy, dried out, and slightly crispy on the edges. The longer you bake it, the firmer and crispier it will get, so adjust cooking time accordingly.

Air Fryer Method:

Wrap tofu in a clean, absorbent towel and set something heavy on top – like a cast-iron skillet – to press out excess moisture.

Unwrap tofu and cut into small cubes. Arrange in the air fryer in an even layer and cook on 400F for 20 minutes minimum. Same recommendations apply for level of crispiness.

Spicy Peanut Butter Marinade:

In a small mixing bowl, add sesame oil, aminos, sweetener, nut butter, lime juice, and chili garlic sauce. Whisk to combine. Then taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more nut butter for creaminess/ nuttiness, aminos for saltiness, lime juice for acidity, or chili garlic sauce for heat. Set aside.

Add baked tofu to the almond butter-tamari sauce and let marinate for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The longer it marinates, the more intense the flavor.

Stir Fry:

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the tofu. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until browned on all sides and slightly caramelized. Remove from pan and set aside.

Prepare veggies, rice or cauliflower rice to your liking and add the remaining marinade.
