Recipe Ingredients for Tofu with Peanut-Ginger Sauce

5 tbsp Peanut Butter
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp honey
2 tsp ginger
2 cloves garlic
14 ounces tofu
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups spinach
4 oz mushrooms
4 scallions

Recipe Directions for Tofu with Peanut-Ginger Sauce

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

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