One of our most popular and personal favorite recipes- PEANUT TOFU! We love to pair it with carrots, broccoli, rice, and green onions, but this recipe is good with just about anything (rice, noodles, veggies, etc.)!


  • 1 (14 oz.) block of extra firm tofu
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil for marinade + 1 tbsp. for sauteing
  • 3 tbsp. peanut butter (both crunchy and creamy will work)
  • 2 tbsp. agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/2 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • Step 1 Take tofu out of package and let water drain out for at least 30 minutes(If you are short on time, pat tofu with a paper towel and lightly squeeze out the water).
  • Step 2 Preheat oven to 350°F and place parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  • Step 3 Chop tofu into small cubes.
  • Step 4 Put tofu in the oven for 20 minutes (this will dry out the tofu, allowing it to better absorb the marinade).
  • Step 5 While the tofu is cooking, make marinade by combining all ingredients (listed under tofu) in a large mixing bowl.
  • Step 6 Whisk well.
  • Step 7 Once the tofu is done cooking, take out of the oven and put into the mixing bowl with the marinade.
  • Step 8 Mix well so that all of the pieces of tofu are covered with the marinade.
  • Step 9 Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
  • Step 10 Put olive oil for sauteing in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Step 11 Add tofu (trying to keep most of the marinade in the bowl, some will transfer and that’s okay).
  • Step 12 Saute the tofu until golden brown on all sides.
  • Step 13 Serve tofu and top with the remainder of the sauce (we usually microwave the sauce for ~10 seconds to heat up prior to serving). We like to pair our tofu with rice & veggies, but serve it with whatever you please!
