Revisiting Roasted Tofu with Spicy Peanut Sauce
Skewered roasted tofu with a peanut sauce is one of my all time favorites for catering, and it’s pretty awesome for eating at home too.
When I began this site I wanted to start with some of my crowd-pleaser recipes, dishes that I knew and loved so you could get a feel for my style of cooking. Two and a half years later seems like a good time to dig up and recirculate a few, just for fun. This was my fifth post ever from December 2011 so many of you haven’t seen it. Or you’ve forgotten about it and deep down you want to remember it.

Graduation parties, Memorial Day parties, weddings, garden parties, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, whatever excuse you need to have a party….this will be eaten with gusto by your guests. The tofu can be served warm or cold which means you can prep it all ahead of time. LOVE that. You could also make other kinds of skewers for dipping in the peanut sauce—like chicken grilled with soy sauce, honey, ginger and lemongrass; grilled peppers and zucchini; or grilled shrimp with lime. Or you could forget the vehicles and just eat the peanut sauce with a spoon.
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try smoking the tofu before roasting it—Roasted Tofu with Tomatoes and Chipotles has tofu-smoking tips.
Check out Bio&Chic for bamboo skewers of all shapes and sizes that are far more entertaining than toothpicks.

Don’t forget the cilantro for sprinkling.
