Peanut Crusted Tofu Pad Thai

Since it is nut butter week I thought I should try and make at least one savory dish! What is better than a pad thai dish! I have always loved pad thai dishes and think they are super easy to make and it turned out super delicious. Powdered peanut butter is the featured nut butter and it is great for sauces. Plus it has less fat than normal peanut butter but still great flavor!

Ingredients:                                            -1 pack extra firm tofu                         -1 tbsp coconut aminos                     -2 tbsp powdered peanut butter    -2 organic millet and brown rice ramen cakes or any pad thai noodles of choice                  -Vegetables of choice: I used broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots       -Optional: sesame seeds, cilantro, peanuts for topping

Sauce:

-3 tbsp coconut aminos                    -3 tbsp powdered peanut butter     -1 tsp honey                                             -juice of 1/2 lime                                     -1/2 tsp ginger powder                     -1 clove minced garlic

Directions:                                              1. Preheat oven to 400F. Press water out of the tofu and cut into cubes.                                 2. Drizzle with coconut aminos and coat in powdered peanut butter. Bake for 30 minutes. 3. While it is baking make the noodles and prep the vegetables. 4. Make sauce by simply whisking together the ingredients. 5. Add everything to a large pan until well combined.                          6. Top with the optional toppings and more coconut aminos if desired.
