Thai Peanut Tofu


Thai Peanut Tofu

1 block tofu diced
1 cup flour
1 cup arrowroot
1 cup of chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tsp chili sauce (or to taste)
1 tsp fresh ginger, crushed
½ C chicken stock or water
1 tsp sesame oil, dark
¼ C peanuts for garnish
enough oil to fry tofu

salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix flour, arrowroot, and a pinch of salt. Toss tofu with flour mixture being careful not to break up tofu. Let sit for 5 minutes and give it another toss. Add oil to frying pan and carefully place tofu in the pan. Once tofu is golden brown remove from pan and place on oven sheet pan. Bake tofu for 20 minutes or until crispy.
Mix the peanut, teriyaki, and chili sauce, ginger, sesame oil in a small saucepan. Add hot water (or chicken stock) until mixture smoothes out.
Remove tofu from oven and drain excess oil. Toss with Thai peanut sauce, garnish with peanuts. Try this with soba noodles, and snow peas.
