  • 1 pound firm tofu
  • 1 cup San-J Thai Peanut Sauce
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • ½ cup carrots thinly sliced
  • ½ cup canned water chestnuts thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced


  • Drain the tofu and wrap in a clean towel or paper towels. Press the tofu for at least 15 minutes by adding weight to it. 
  • Once pressed, cut the tofu into bite-sized cubes and place in a large container. Pour the San-J Thai Peanut Sauce over the tofu and stir gently to combine. Marinate at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Place the marinated tofu cubes on a lightly oiled baking sheet and reserve the marinade.   
  • Bake for 45 minutes until golden brown. Drizzle the tofu with the reserved marinade and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • While the tofu bakes, prepare the steamed vegetables. Place the broccoli in a steamer basket over boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add the carrots and steam for 3 minutes. Add the water chestnuts and steam for 1 minute.  
  • Remove from the heat and spoon the vegetables onto a large serving platter.  Place the tofu over the steamed vegetables, garnish with the green onion and serve immediately.
