This is another really quick, easy meal that is a great source of protein, iron, and calcium.

You’ll need to prepare and use the (Sorta) Spicy Peanut Sauce – which is really simple and easy – and, if you’d like, serve with a side of rice or quinoa.


  • 10 oz Block of Tofu
  • 1/2 Bunch of Spinach
  • 2 Teaspoons Sesame Oil (you could use water but the sesame oil adds a great flavor)
  • 2 Teaspoons of soy sauce
  • Salt, Pepper to Taste
  • Sriracha to Taste


Step 1

Cube and press the tofu (i put them in an absorbent towel and apply pressure).

Step 2

Prepare the (Sorta) Spicy Peanut Sauce

Step 3

Heat the oil and soy sauce, then add the tofu. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired. Sear one side of the tofu, then flip and repeat. (approx 5 minutes a side)

Step 4

Steam the spinach until it turns a nice green. Don't over-steam!

Step 5

Serve with rice (or not) and top with peanut sauce and sriracha to taste.

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
