Tofu with Thai Peanut Sauce is a simple homemade rendition of a vegan takeout favorite- the sweet/salty/spicy/tart peanut sauce is highly addictive!
Add 2 tablespoons coconut oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add ginger, chile (if using), garlic, lime zest, and red curry paste and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add vegetable broth, peanut butter, coconut milk, brown sugar, and soy sauce and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes or so, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.
Add 2 tablespoons coconut oil to a skillet and heat over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add tofu and pan fry until golden on all sides. This is much easier if using a non-stick or cast iron skillet. If using stainless steel wait until the tofu releases from the pan before browning the next side. Remove from heat, sprinkle with salt and set aside.
