Peanut Sauce and Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry

Peanut Sauce and Stir Fry

This savoury peanut sauce tastes wonderfully with sweet potatoes and broccoli. Baked tofu makes a nice “meaty” addition and really fills out the dish.

To give tofu a meatier and chewier texture, it can be fried or baked at 350 for 20-30 minutes until crisp.  The Kitchn has instructions on how to bake tofu here.
