Crispy tofu with peanut sauce


1 package tofu(12oz)

1 medium carrot, sliced into thin strips with a vegetable peeler

1-2 Tbsp oil 

peanut sauce 

1.5 Tbsp sesame oil

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

4 Tbsp light brown sugar

1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce

2.5 Tbsp peanut butter 


1. Drain the tofu. Wrapped it with some paper towels and put something heavy on top to drain the water out. While preparing other ingredients.

2. Mix the sauce ingredients and set aside. Prepare the carrot with a vegetable peeler so you get carrot ribbons. Cut the tofu into small cubes.

3. Heat the oil in a pan and cook tofu, preferably cooking all sides for crispiness. 

4. When tofu's done, add carrot ribbons and saute them together for 2-3 minutes. Add sauce to it and stir. Cook for a few minutes until sauce is slightly thickened. Serve immediately.
