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.

    I will definitely try these. But that’s not why I wrote. I wanted to tell you that I’m proud of you for taking off time to be with your family. It may or may not have been a difficult decision. That doesn’t matter – It was the right thing to do. While you didn’t ask my permission, you didn’t need to. You have my unmitigated support.

    Now go enjoy. Just remember to put your feet up now and then and if anyone volunteers, accept their offer without guilt. It will not only give you a break, you will likely have the perfect chance to bond with (and love) your helpers.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Love pomegranates, and I love Brussels Sprouts, so I can’t wait to try this recipe. My boyfriend doesn’t have the same love affair with Brussels Sprouts as I do, but I’m hoping this will help change his mind. Thanks!

      This is definitely a recipe that could change the tune of a non-brussels-sprouts lover. Let me know how it goes.
