Make the Thai Tofu Satay Skewers

  1. Press the tofu to squeeze out excess water. Cut the tofu into small square cubes, roughly the same size. Wash the mushroom and cut into similar sizes with the tofu.
  2. Soak your skewers in cold water for about 10 minutes. This is to prevent the skewers from burning.
  3. In a bowl, combine the ingredients to make the satay marinade and mix well. Coat the tofu cubes with the marinade sauce and let them sit about 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F).
  5. Place the tofu cubes and mushroom on the skewers. I use 4 pieces for each skewers.
  6. Bake the skewers in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Make the Thai Peanut sauce

  1. Meanwhile, make the peanut sauce by heating up the ingredients in a pot. Simmer on low heat until the sauce thickens.
  2. After the skewers are baked, serve on a plate with rice, the peanut sauce and garnish with green onion or coriander and sesame seeds.
