Ingredients

  • 1 cup white rice

  • 2 cups water

  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil

  • 1 pound tofu, cubed

  • ½ white onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¾ (6 ounce) can tomato paste

  • ½ cup peanut butter

Directions

  1. Bring rice and water to a boil in a pot. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes, or until rice is tender and water has been absorbed.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the tofu in the oil until browned, about 10 minutes. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in the tomato paste and peanut butter; cook and stir until peanut butter has melted completely, about 5 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.
