Tofu & Broccoli w/ Peanut Sauce over Brown Rice

What you need: 

2 c brown rice, cooked according to directions
1/2-1 lb firm tofu, drained
4 c broccoli, rinsed and drained (or any fresh vegetable combination that you like)
2 green onions, chopped for garnish
1/4 c + additional to marinate tofu, Soy Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade (or any teriyaki type marinade that you like), basically a combination of soy sauce, sugar, oil, garlic, sesame seeds, onion, ginger, & sesame oil
1 c peanut butter
1/2 t, or to taste, pumpkin pie spice (combination of cinnamon, clove, ginger, & nutmeg, I believe)
1 T brown sugar
1/2 can light coconut milk (I believe the can is around 14 oz)
1/4 c peanuts, chopped for garnish
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped for garnish

What you do: 

*Please note that all measurements are estimates (I don't usually measure). Taste and adjust according to your liking.
Drain tofu and dice. Place in a container or Ziploc bag with some of the teriyaki marinade. Let marinate for 20-30 minutes, or longer. Then, bake or fry the tofu until browned, and set aside. Cook brown rice according to directions and set aside. Lightly steam broccoli/vegetables. While broccoli is steaming, stir together peanut butter, teriyaki marinade, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice over low-medium heat in a small saucepan. Mixture will darken as it cooks. After 3-4 minutes (use your judgment), add 1/2 can light coconut milk. Continue to heat over low-medium heat for 1-2 more minutes until heated through.
Serve over tofu, broccoli/vegetables, and cooked brown rice. Garnish with chopped green onion, chopped peanuts, and chopped cilantro, if desired.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

We really enjoyed this. Just added a bit of water to make it not so thick... but I think its the best peanut sauce I have ever made. I cooked up some broccoli, red bells and onion along with the tofu. Amazing! Thanks!

This recipe is fabulous! Definitely the best peanut sauce recipe I have ever tasted. I have made it twice in 2 weeks. My family adored it. :)>>>

this was so good!! For the veggies, I used broccoli, kale, and red bell pepper.  I followed the recipe loosely and I think next time I will probably try to make it spicy with dried red chilies or sriracha sauce.  I tried to simplify by just frying some tofu in a little bit of oil in a large pan, then adding the marinade and other vegetables and ingredients and allowing it all to simmer together until done.  I used two heaping tbsp tablespoon PB but otherwise my ingredient amounts were pretty similar.  I will be making this again. YUM

This was great.  I did add more water (a lot, actually) and used 5-spice like the other reviewers mentioned.  I also added some hot chili sauce.  It cut through the sweetness perfectly.  The side of raw red peppers really accented the flavors as well.  I baked the marinated tofu at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.  It was my first tofu stir-fry, and I will definitely make it again.

this sauce is soso good! you could probably put it over anything and be pleased with the results. oh and i used reg coconut milk vs. the lite one. it turns out pretty thick and fills you up fast.

I LOVE this recipe. It was even worthy to make it into my fav recipe book. I added celery because I didn't have enough broccoli and used white rice because I didn't have anything else. I cooked my tofu in a little bit more oil and teryaki sauce and it turned out amazing. I don't think I've ever made tofu better! It was really scrumptious and I will definitely make again.

I just made this and I love it!!  Only did a few things differently was used about half the amount of peanut butter and soy milk instead of coconut milk... I am allergic.  I used snow peas, broccoli, carrots, and water chestnuts.  I will also use extra firm tofu next time.  Turned out beautifully. 

Thank you for sharing!!!

This was really good!  I will definitely echo the adding some water comment, though.  I ended up adding almost half a cup.  I used teriyaki marinade from a bottle, but the tofu came out excellent. Thanks!
