  1. Whisk coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, sriracha sauce, and ground chile powder in a bowl until a smooth sauce forms.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots and red bell pepper; saute until just tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tofu; saute until lightly browned, about 4 minutes per side. Add garlic and ginger; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Pour sauce into the skillet; stir to coat tofu, carrots, and bell pepper. Cook until flavors combine, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; stir in spinach 1 cup at a time until wilted. Serve over brown rice.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • The best way to drain tofu is to freeze it ahead of time, then let it defrost on paper towels to soak up the water. If you don't have time to freeze it, carefully squeeze it between your palms over the sink and let it drain on paper towels until you're ready to cook. The more you drain ahead of time, the faster it will brown in the pan.
  • This recipe works just as well with chicken. You can also use different kinds of peanut butter to get different flavors and textures of sauce.

I did make changes, but delicious as is! Thank you!

The sauce is wonderful!!! I added some cilantro and asparagus, and substituted Braggs liquid aminos for the soy sauce. Can't wait to try it with other vegetable combinations!

Added curry powder for more spice.

I did not make any changes however as I’m enjoying it as leftovers, I think mushrooms might be a nice addition. This dish is absolutely delicious!

My daughter is vegetarian bordering on vegan, but the rest of my family is not so I am always looking for recipes that will satisfy everyone...and with an athlete husband and two other teenage b...

A wee bit sweet for our tastes so will cut back on sugar next time. Lots of veggies & used linguine.
