Recipe Ingredients for Tofu with Peanut-Ginger Sauce

1 oz Water
2 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter Spread
1 serving Rice Vinegar
1 serving Soy Sauce
0.3 tbsp Pure US Grade A Clover Honey
1 tsp Minced Ginger
1 cloves, raw Garlic
7 oz Extra Firm Tofu
2 serving Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups Baby Spinach
0.5 medium raw Bell Pepper Red
0.5 cup chopped Scallions
4 oz Fettuccine

Recipe Directions for Tofu with Peanut-Ginger Sauce

To prepare sauce: Whisk water, peanut butter, rice vinegar (or white vinegar), soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic in a small bowl. 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. 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. Add spinach, red bell pepper, scallions and the peanut sauce and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just cooked, 1 to 2 minutes more.
