Recipe Ingredients for tofu with ginger peanut sauce

5 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons organic peanut butter
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons minced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
14 ounces tofu
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
4 cups baby spinach (6 ounces)
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (4 ounces)
4 scallions, sliced (1 cup)

Recipe Directions for tofu with ginger peanut sauce

  1. To prepare sauce: Whisk water, peanut butter, rice vinegar (or white vinegar), soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic in a small bowl.

  2. To prepare tofu: Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Slice the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slabs. Coarsely crumble each slice into smaller, uneven pieces.

  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add tofu and cook in a single layer, without stirring, until the pieces begin to turn golden brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Then gently stir and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until all sides are golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes more.

  4. Add spinach, mushrooms, scallions and the peanut sauce and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just cooked, 1 to 2 minutes more.
