Spicy Peanut Tofu

Spicy Peanut Tofu

Easily the most colorful, flavor bomb vegan dish I’ve made this winter.

And it’s my new favorite recipe.

This recipe can be topped with crushed peanuts, cilantro, halved cherry tomatoes – the possibilities are endless.

Lastly, if you’re not vegan and want even more protein, substitute bone broth for the vegetable broth.

Note: saucey tofu dishes are typically served on a bed of rice or noodles, as per the Asian tradition– but try it on a bed of steamed red cabbage, or sugar snap peas – the ambrosia of colors will tantalize your eyes as well as your palate.
