That peanut butter tofu thing

That turned some of you right off, didn't it?  I made this for lunch today and hadn't made it in a long time.  I'd forgotten how yummy it is.

Cube up some extra firm tofu and saute it in olive oil.  Add a little crushed garlic, but not much.  Seriously now. Not much.  You want a little rich ping--not the wedding in the Godfather.

When it's heated thoroughly, take the pan off the heat and stir in 1/4 cup of peanut butter.  Stir it with a wooden spoon until the tofu cubes are coated.  Let it rest for a moment.

Steam some fresh broccoli--it should equal about 3 cups when you're done.

Toss the broccoli and the peanut butter tofu together.

Throw in some walnut pieces.  And dried currants, if you like.

Serve it with brown rice and eat it plain out of a bowl.

We ate it too fast--I didn't get a picture.



  1. Wow! I have to make this. It sounds like the perfect meal for my Beltane weekend! Easy to camp with! Do you recommend crunchy or creamy?

  2. I like crunchy, but either one will work. Enjoy!
