Method

1

PREPARING THE BROWN RICE

Bring 2.5 cups of vegetable stock to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Add 1 cup of brown rice, turn the heat down to low, cover and cook for 55 minutes.
Once the rice is cooked, remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

PREPARING THE TERIYAKI PEANUT SAUCE

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients.
After you’ve mixed all of the ingredients together, taste the sauce and feel free to customize it to your liking. Add more sriracha and/or chili garlic sauce for more heat, or add more brown sugar for sweetness. If you’re a peanut butter lover you can double the amount used in this recipe.

3

PAN-FRYING THE TOFU

Heat 1 tbsp of sesame oil or coconut oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
Arrange your cubed tofu in the wok. Cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
Flip each piece and brown the other side, cook for another 3-4 minutes.

FINISHING THE TERIYAKI PEANUT TOFU

Reheat your wok or skillet and pour the tofu and sauce mixture into the hot pan.
The sauce should bubble and thicken, stir constantly to prevent the sauce from burning.
Once the sauce is thick (about 1-1.5 minutes) remove from heat.

TO SERVE

Serve the ¼ of the vegetables and ¼ of the tofu on a bed of brown rice (about ¾ cup).
Enjoy!
