Recipe Ingredients for Tofu and Peppers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

16 ounces firm or extra-firm tofu, drained well
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 medium red bell peppers, seeds and ribs removed, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
4 sprigs cilantro, for garnish (optional)

Recipe Directions for Tofu and Peppers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice each tofu cake crosswise into 6 rectangles.

  2. In a shallow container, whisk together 1 tablespoon each oil and soy sauce. Dip tofu pieces lightly on all sides to coat. Brush two rimmed baking sheets with remaining tablespoon oil; divide tofu between them. Scatter peppers around the edges.

  3. Bake 10 minutes; turn tofu and peppers. Continue baking until tofu is golden brown and peppers begin to char, 10 to 15 minutes more.

  4. In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together peanut butter, lime juice, chili sauce, brown sugar, 3 tablespoons water, and remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, until warm.

  5. Drizzle sauce over tofu and peppers. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
