Tofu Peanut Stir-Fry


"This is absolutely the best way to eat tofu, especially for first timers. The tofu has a slightly crunchy exterior while the inside is nice and soft. I used to make my stir-fry with chicken or beef, but my husband won't have it any other way than tofu now! And my 2 year old loves it! It is a delicious, easy, quick, and inexpensive meal. Serve with Asian noodles or with steamed rice. Enjoy!"

It was good but I will definately do less peanut sauce and tofu next time. It was very overpowering for the dish.

This is a great recipe! I used fresh veggies: Broccoli, red pepper, green pepper, red onion, bamboo shoots, celery, carrot and bean sprouts. Buy extra firm tofu and cut it into 1/4 to 1/2 inch...

I do not hesitate in giving this recipe five stars. My son loves cooked carrots, tofu & peanut butter--so to throw all those flavors together into one recipe turned out to be a real HIT with my...

Before this recipe, I hadn't discovered a way to make tofu's texture and taste appealing--and this created an incredible stir fry that even kept well over a few days in the fridge. Very good!!

I was very pleased with the way this dish turned out. I didn't follow the recipe exactly as stated, because I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand. I also added some additional ingredients...
