Tofu Satay

My relationship with tofu has been complicated for years …it was a love hate relationship.

But now…it’s only love , big love!! When you know how to cook tofu . It’s done . You can do whatever you want . It’s cheap, easy and really good. Like those satay.

Took me 15 minutes to prepare and about 25 minutes to cook in the oven .


2 Blocks of Firm press tofu .

Cut each block in 6 strips

Marinade :

  • 4 TBSP of soya sauce
  • 1 TBSP of maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP of peanut butter
  • 1 TBSP of Sambal Oelek
  • 1 TBSP of Sesame oil
  • garlic and onion powder ( 1 tsp of each)

Put the tofu into the marinade for at least 30 minutes

Preheat the Oven at 425 F.

On a baking tray, line the tofu . I always use parchment sheet to make sure it doesn’t stick. Cook each side  12-15 minutes .

Remove the tofu from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before skewering them on the sticks.

Peanuts butter Sauce : 

  • 1 TSP of garlic crushed
  • 1 TSP Sesame oil
  • 2 TSP of red curry paste
  • 1 TBSP of Soya sauce
  • 1\2 cup of Coconut milk
  • 1\3 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 lime squeezed

Mix everything together .

The red curry and the coconut milk make the difference . its so good mixed together .

The trick for the mixture to be smooth  ; Put 1 cup of water in the microwave for 3- 4 minutes . Slowly add it while mixing until it’s smooth . Taste and seasoned .

I don’t like to put my peanuts sauce on the heat . I prefer mixing boiled water to make sure my peanut butter doesn’t cook too much and stay smooth as I wish.

Serve with a lot of Cilantro, lime and peanuts 🙂

Everybody’s gonna love it .
