Golden Tofu Triangles with Rich Peanut Sauce
Copyright: Vegan Express
Two 16-ounce tubs extra-firm tofu
1 tablespoon olive oil
Rich Peanut Sauce
1. Cut each block of tofu into 6 slabs crosswise. (My note: Make it 8 slabs. The texture is much better with thinner pieces.) Blot well with tea towels or paper towels, then cut each slab in half to make 2 squares. Finally, cut each square on the diagonal to make traingles.
2. Spread the oil evenly over the surface of a wide skillet and heat. Add the tofu and saute over medium-high heat until golden on both sides, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with a little salt.
3. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce according to the recipe.
4. To serve, arrange some of the tofu triangles on each plate and drizzle with the sauce. Or, for a fun effect, thread the triangles onto skewers, then spoon the sauce over them.
Menu suggestion: Serve with cooked rice, bean thread noodles, rice vermicelli, or soba.
This is also good with Bok Choy, Red Cabbage, and Carrot Salad.
