Tofu in Spicy Peanut Sauce (Vegan)

Peanut Butter Sriracha Tofu

When The Beets sang at the top of their lungs about Killer Tofu, Spicy Basil’s Tofu in Peanut Sauce is the dish they were singing about (disclaimer: that in no way is real trivia). For Vegan MoFo Day 6 “Recreate a restaurant meal,” I recreated this dish at home. I told you I love peanut butter!

The peanut butter sauce is the same ingredient blend as my Spicy Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce, but the recipe is scaled up. I started preparing peanut butter tofu this way when I found a recipe on Triumpth Wellness. It makes a little too much sauce for me, but I’ve tried adjusting the ingredients, and it never turns out quite as tasty.

Tofu in Spicy Peanut Sauce | Vegan MoFo Day 6
  • Block of firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  1. Press tofu for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in skillet on medium heat.
  3. Cook tofu on each side until golden.
  4. While tofu is cooking, mix remaining ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.
  5. Turn heat to low and pour sauce over cooked tofu. Allow to sit for 3 minutes without stirring.
  6. Serve over veggies or rice.
