Baked Tofu Skewers w Satay Sauce
This baked tofu dish is absolutely divine, it's easy and it's a crowd pleaser. The dish can all be prepared ahead of time and then just cooked when needed. If you're not that fond of tofu, you could replace it with chicken instead, which I'd suggest to pan fry instead of bake. Serve as a nibble, entree or light dinner with a salad on the side.

Serves: 4 serves
- 2 x 240g blocks of firm tofu
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 t ginger, finely chopped or grated
- 4 T crunchy peanut butter
- 2 T soy sauce
- 2 T pure maple syrup (or coconut sugar)
- juice of 1 lemon
- ½ c water
- Preheat oven to 200 C. Lightly oil a large baking sheet or dish.
- Drain tofu blocks in several paper towel to absorb as much water as possible – 10 -15 minutes. Cut tofu into 1-2 cm cube and lay out in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, tossing half way through, until crispy.
- While the tofu is cooking, make the sauce. Place all ingredients into a small pot. Over a medium heat, gently stir and warm the sauce until well combined and peanut butter has melted, adding more water if needed until desired consistency is reached.
- Thread the tofu evenly onto bamboo skewers and drizzle over the satay sauce, pouring any extra into a small dish on the side. Serve immediately.
- Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
