It’s almost time for the big game, and that means you’ll need to start planning what you’re going to make for your family and friends. Whether you’re hosting or attending a party, this tofu satay with a peanut sriracha glaze is the perfect appetizer to please the crowd.
Okay, it’s not the typical game day food choice that you’re used to. Football food usually consists of nachos, potato skins, or BBQ. That’s cool, I love those foods too, in fact, if you click on the underlined links, they'll take you to the recipes. However, it’s always fun to add a surprise to the mix, and these pretty little tofu skewers are the perfect snack to shake things up.
I was inspired to make these after attending a New Year’s Day house party at a friend’s house. My friends were so sweet and thoughtful, they asked their caterer to include some vegan items for my me and my husband, and peanut glazed tofu squares where one of the many mouthwatering appetizers that they made for us.
As soon as I took that first bite, I knew that I was going to recreate them at home so I could share them with you. It took me a few weeks to get there, but we still have a week and a half until the Super Bowl, so it’s all good.
The peanut and sriracha glaze makes this dish. It’s so easy to whip up, and takes less than five minutes once you get the ingredients out of the refrigerator. All you’ll need are a few tablespoons of natural peanut butter, a couple teaspoons of sriracha, some lime juice, sea salt, and water. Mix it all up and then slather it on the tofu and get cooking. EASY!
I used a stir-fry oil that I found in the Asian section of my local supermarket to give the tofu satay extra flavor, but you can use olive oil if you don’t want to buy a new bottle of oil. As much as I’d love to say that you can skip the oil, I can’t. If you don’t use it the tofu will stick to the skillet, and you don’t want that to happen.
The seared tofu will develop a slightly crisp texture on the surface, which compliments the slightly chewy inside. Perfect!
When the skewers are done, plate them on a tray and drizzle more sriracha peanut sauce on them, then sprinkle them with fresh cilantro and crushed peanuts. I’d also suggest saving the extra sauce for dipping.
This scrumptious peanut glazed tofu satay isn’t just for appetizers. Cube it and put it in a stir-fry, or a power bowl, or keep it simple and put it on a bed of rice with veggies of your choice. Be creative!
