Peanut Sauce

Let’s talk about one of the most delicious and versatile condiments out there – peanut sauce. If you’re a fan of bold flavors and a little bit of heat, then cooking with spicy peanut sauce is right up your alley.

Peanut sauce is a rich and creamy blend of peanuts, spices, and other flavorful ingredients that will impress your friends. Whether you’re serving it with grilled chicken skewers or tossing it in a stir-fry, a dollop of spicy peanut sauce can instantly change your dish.

It can be used as a dipping sauce for spring rolls or drizzled over salads for an extra kick. You can even use it as a marinade for grilled meats or as a base for curries. The possibilities are endless!

Tofu? Yes please!

One of the great things about cooking with tofu is its ability to take on different textures depending on how it’s prepared. Whether you prefer it crispy, firm, or silky smooth, there are various techniques you can use to achieve the desired texture.

Crispy: To make your tofu crispy, it’s best batter and then deep fry it. That way the tofu absorbs the oil and takes on a crispy texture, while the best tofu variety for deeping frying is extra-firm tofu.

Firm: For a firm, chunky finish, grill your tofu. In order to do this, the best tofu variety is a firm or extra-firm tofu.

Smooth and Silky: To achieve this texture, you must use a tofu with a higher water content. Pan-frying isn’t recommended but deep frying is a great way to add flavor and maintain its soft texture.

When it comes to flavoring tofu, the options are endless. You can marinate it in a tangy sauce, stir-fry it with your favorite vegetables and spices, or even grill or bake it for added depth of flavor. Tofu can be used in a wide range of dishes such as stir-fries, curries, salads, soups, and even desserts.
