Thai Style Tofu with Broccoli and Peanut Sauce
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup organic peanut butter
1-3 tablespoons of sweetener (I like maple syrup) to taste
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, dependent upon how spicy you want it
1 clove finely minced garlic
1 teaspoon fresh minced cilantro
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
dash of red pepper flakes
2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 cup fresh broccoli florets, lightly steamed
1 package of Thai style tofu, cut into 1/4 in. thick slices (Sunergia foods makes an excellent one) or tofu that has been marinated with fresh ginger, lime juice, fresh garlic and cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup cooked brown rice
To prepare peanut sauce, combine coconut milk, peanut butter, sweetener, pepper, garlic, cilantro, ginger, red pepper flakes and lime juice. Mix well and heat over low flame until warm. For tofu, brush with a bit of olive oil and broil for 3-5 minutes, watching carefully until golden brown. Cut browned tofu into triangles and toss with broccoli and peanut sauce. Serve over brown rice.
This is such a delicious dish!
