Spicy peanut tofu marinade

By Jasmin

When I make tofu at home, I usually make around 35 oz at once. I store half of it in salted water which is changed once a week to keep the tofu fresh longer (up to one month). With the rest of the tofu, I prepare a herbed olives spread, and marinade some of it as well. This spicy peanut butter tofu marinade is one of my go-to. Delicious and simple to make. It truly takes your tofu to the next level.
