  1. Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and cook green onions for one minute. Add tofu, and continue cooking 4 minutes more, sprinkling with soy sauce halfway through. Gently stir in the peanut butter and ginger, being careful not to break the tofu, until well incorporated.
  2. Remove from heat, and toss in coconut. Transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

This was extremely tasty, but more importantly, super easy! The rice took longer to cook than the main dish. I would have given it 5 stars, but it needed a few improvements. It seems like the...

Upon reading the reviews of this dish I took it upon myself to embelish as well. I decided to add some fresh cilantro and curry powder (but omitted the coconut flakes-- personal preference). Th...

Yum! We made this one tonight and I was pleased to find a fast and flavourful dinner, that is also quite healthy! The changes I made: - used peanut sauce instead of peanut butter - used garlic ...
