Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Hubby and I decided to try cooking with tofu because it’s easy to cook dairy free recipes with tofu. I found this recipe and thought we’d give it a shot for our first tofu dinner. This recipe says it makes 4 servings, but it’s more like 8. Next time we make it, we’ll 1/2 it. We also thought it could use some more spice.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce (from Allrecipes.com) Makes 8 servings
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 small head broccoli, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
5 fresh mushrooms, sliced – I used a pkg of pre-sliced baby-bellas
1 pound firm tofu, cubed
1/2 cup peanut butter – I used Smuckers All Natural PB1/2 cup hot water
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons molasses
ground cayenne pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Saute broccoli, red bell pepper, mushrooms and tofu for 5 minutes.
In a small bowl combine peanut butter, hot water, vinegar, soy sauce, molasses and cayenne pepper. Pour over vegetables and tofu. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender crisp.

    When my kids were little I used canned hash. I added hominy and, of course, eggs. I think my mom fed us canned hash. Kind of a comfort taste.
