Peanut Tofu Curry

I was in the mood for some spicy curry but it was a Tuesday at 6PM, I had no desire to go to the grocery store sooo what does a girl do but cook with condiments everyone should have on hand!  I found this quick recipe and knew A would love it too!  Generally I lean towards healthier recipes but peanut butter is healthy too right?

Peanut Tofu Curry
adapted from Daily Garnish

1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
sriracha, to taste
Tofu, cut into pieces
Red bell pepper, sliced

Whisk peanut butter, rice vinegar, liquid aminos, hoisin sauce, sriracha and water until it forms a paste.  If it's too thick, add a bit more water.

Add 1 tbsp of sesame oil in a nonstick pan over medium high heat.

Once the pan is hot, add the tofu.  Flip the tofu several times until it begins to brown evenly on all sides.  Now comes the fun part!  Add the peanut sauce mixture to the tofu.  Stir quickly to prevent sticking or burning.  Add the red bell pepper (or any other veggie you prefer) to the pan.  Mix until evenly coated with peanut sauce and viola done!

Serve with rice or over noodles (I prefer brown rice!  A, can beg to differ...=)). 

Serves 2-3 people
