For the tofu

  • ¼ cup neutral oil
  • 1 package firm or extra firm tofu
  • your grain of choice (rice, quinoa, cauli rice, etc)

For the vegetables

  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
  • 8 oz oyster mushrooms
  • 3-4 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce

  • 2 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 3-4 tablespoon water


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Drain the tofu, wrap the block in paper towels or a kitchen towel and place a heavy pot or cast iron pan on top to press out excess moisture
  • Meanwhile, toss the broccoli and oyster mushrooms (or whatever vegetables you like) in olive oil and salt and pepper.
  • Cube the tofu and toss liberally with oil
  • Spread tofu and vegetables out on two sheet pans. Bake until vegetables are tender and tofu is browned and crispy.
  • While the tofu and vegetables are cooking, prepare your grain according to package instructions.
  • While grains are cooking, make the tofu sauce. Mix peanut butter, hoisin sauce and sambal oelek together.
  • In a small saucepot, saute garlic and shallot until fragrant, about a minute. Add the sauce mixture and enough water, one tablespoon a time, to get a sauce the consistency of ketchup
  • Toss the finished tofu in the sauce. Plate with your grains and vegetables.
