"I fell in love with this dish at my local Thai restaurant. Steamed spinach and baked tofu is smothered in a sweet peanut sauce. Serve over steamed white sticky rice. You can substitute chicken or other meat if you prefer."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I don't usually like the peanut sauce at Thai restaurants -- it's too sweet for my personal tastes. But this recipe caught my eye, and it was so amazingly delicious! The balance of flavors was perfect. I can't wait to make this again, and I'd love to try the sauce on grilled veggies and grilled tofu. Yum!
It's okay, but probably won't make again. Neither of us cared for the blend of flavors. On the plus side, I had my best day since developing arthritis after eating this.
This is similar to dishes I've had called "Rama Thai", "Royal Thai", and "Phraram Long Song" (Meat in Peanut Sauce). I think this version is a little too thick and peanut buttery. I added an extra 1/2 cup of water. Next time I will only use 1/3 cup of peanut butter and add a 14 oz. can of coconut milk, and 1/8 cup water. I thought it needed a little more flavor, so I used 2 1/2 tbls. soy sauce, 2 1/2 tbls. rice vinegar, 1/4 tsp. powdered ginger, 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (to add some kick), and 1/8 tsp. sesame oil. I thought it was just a bit too sweet, so next time I'll only add 2 tbls. of sugar (esp. if I use coconut milk). I like my tofu crispy, so I drained and cut extra firm tofu into 2"x1" pieces, salted the cubes and deep fried them in 175F degree veg. oil for 3 minutes until golden. I wilted the spinach in a couple tsps. of oil in a skillet and drained it in a collander. I also added a 10 oz. can of mock duck. Top the dish with some chopped peanuts and it's perfect. YUM!!
This was an EXCELLENT, restaurant-quality recipe! I sliced & baked my tofu (400 degrees, 20 min on one side, 10 on the other) and followed the recipe exactly - it was delicious. Next time I'll reduce the rice by half - we had way too much left over.
Mmmmmm this was delicious. I took advice from another review and sauteed the tofu and spinach in sesame oil instead of baking and steaming. The peanut sauce was perfect!!
Really good , I pan fried the tofu because we like it crispy.Added lots of garlic and scallions too.
Fantastic! This is my favorite Thai recipe, and I order it all the time at restaurants. This recipe is restaurant quality. I made it with chicken- cubed, seasoned with salt and pepper, dredged in flour then sauteed in a little butter. Amazing. Favorite meal right now. Can't wait for the left overs!!
This was soo good! I took the advice and scaled down the peanut butter to 1/4 cup for 2 servings. Also, I added a bit of Worcestershire sauce as well. Four stars because, as written, it would have been too much peanut butter and not enough tang! It was a great guide to an awesome meal, though!! This is a keeper for me!
