Tofu satay with spicy peanut sauce?
Happy Monday, my Insta friends?. Today I am sharing my all-time favorite skewered dish – satay. Marinated with aromatic spices overnight or for few hours, and grilled for a quick delicious appetizer.
If you do not like peanut sauce, you can sub with almond butter or omit this sauce completely.
~ 1 package firm tofu, rinsed and drained very well, cut into large stick shaped
~ 12 skewers, washed and soaked in water for few minutes, dry well
~ oil for brushing (add a dash of soy sauce for color)
Marinade ingredients, blend below – ~ 4 tbsp chopped lemongrass (used frozen ones, but fresh ones are great too)
~ 2 tsp coriander powder
~ 1 tsp turmeric powder
~ 1/2 tsp curry powder
~ 1/8 tsp garlic powder (optional)
~ 1/8 tsp salt
~ 1 tsp soy sauce/tamari/amino
~ 6 tbsp water
Peanut dipping sauce – mix below together and set aside
~ 1 tbsp chunky peanut butter
~ 1 tbsp soy sauce, use 1/2 tsp if using salted peanut butter
~ 2 tsp maple syrup
~ 1 tsp sriracha sauce
~ 2 tbsp water
Mix marinade ingredients in a large plate enough to hold all tofu in a single layer. Marinate tofu for a few hours, I did mine overnight. Tofu will turn bright yellow, brush little oil mixture on tofu and grill on a nonstick griller until cook. It takes about 3-5 mins depending on your griller. *skewer inserted after they are grilled since I am using an indoor griller. Please stick in skewer before grilling if you are using the open fire BBQ grill.*
Serve as-is or with peanut sauce and cucumbers. You may make fried rice with the remaining marinade or brush more on your tofu when grilling.
What do you think? Will this be your next tofu appetizer? Let me know?? and have a great ?#meatlessmonday
