Tofu Buzz. There are a million ways to prepare tofu. But this is one of my favorites. I love the richness of the peanut sauce combined with the fluffiness of the steamed-sauteed tofu. Serve this tofu over a warm bed of brown rice and steamed veggies or colorful shredded cabbage and you have a healthy, happy meal.
