Sauce:
1 1/2 cups Kikkoman Soy Sauce
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup Kikkoman Thai Style Chili Sauce
1/3 cup sugar
3 ounces green onions, thinly sliced

6 pounds firm tofu, drained

vegetable oil, as needed
1/2 cup green onions, cut diagonally into thin slices
1/3 cup sesame seed, toasted

directions

To make Sauce: In saucepan over medium heat, whisk soy sauce into peanut butter. Whisk in chili sauce, sugar and 1 1/2 cups water; add green onions and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool completely. Will keep, covered, one week in the refrigerator.

Slice each 16-ounce block tofu crosswise into 6 (1/2-inch-thick) pieces; slice each piece diagonally into 2 triangles. Drain on paper towels for about 10 minutes.

For each serving, to order: In nonstick pan, heat oil over high heat; brown 3 triangles tofu on both sides. Remove from heat. Place tofu triangles on plate, slightly overlapping; pour 1/4 cup sauce evenly over tofu. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon green onions and 1/2 teaspoon sesame seed.

Tip: Toss cooked fettuccine with enough sauce to lightly coat, or serve sauce with grilled pork, chicken or eggplant, or as a dip for raw vegetables.

THE STORY OF SOY SAUCE

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
