Marinated Tofu Fingers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Yield: 10 tofu fingers

Marinated Tofu

1/3 cup (80 ml) plus 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1/3 cup (80 ml) light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 pound (450g) extra firm tofu, cut into 10 thick fingers

10 wooden skewers

Spicy Peanut Sauce

1/3 cup (80 ml) unsalted crunchy peanut butter

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon hot sauce

Marinade Preparation:

- Combine the vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, and crushed red pepper flakes in a 1-quart (1 liter) saucepan. Gently warm over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a shallow baking dish and add the tofu fingers.

- Marinate for 8 to 12 hours, turning several times.

- Insert the wooden skewers deeply into the tofu fingers, and grill the fingers on the barbecue for about 5 to 8 minutes, turning frequently to avoid burning.

Peanut Sauce Preparation:

- Combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and stir with a wire whisk until smooth and creamy. Serve the tofu fingers with the sauce on the side. - Sauce makes 2/3 cup (160 ml).

Baked Tofu Fingers: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (Gas Mark 6). Do not use the skewers. Arrange the tofu fingers on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake them for about 20 minutes.
