Garlic Spinach Tofu with Peanut Sauce

I always love to have easy and fast go to dinner recipes. My Garlic Spinach Tofu with Peanut Sauce is always my go to weeknight dinner when i’m in a rush. The nice thing is I typically have all the ingredients in the fridge. When working out the recipe recently I added asparagus to the mix since I had some, you can add more veggies too. Serve along with brown rice or rice of choice and a dollop of my delicious peanut sauce!  

Use the peanut sauce as a dipping sauce for my Fresh Summer Rolls!

I served the tofu with a chicken sauté which I will post the recipe soon!
