Tofu Satay

This is a great recipe!!!

1 lb extra firm tofu, cubed
1 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp water
2 green onions (I used fresh chives from my garden)

1 (14oz)can coconut milk
1 cup almond butter
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
4 tsp  soy sauce
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
2 tsp pure maple syrup
crushed red pepper flakes

Preheat the oven. Place the tofu cubes, soy sauce, oil and water in a small bowl and gently mix well. Allow to marinate for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Transfer to a well-oiled baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
While the tofu is marinating and cooking, prepare the peanut sauce by placing all the ingredients in a blender and blending until smooth. Pour a small amount of the sauce onto the baking tofu as soon as you finish blending it. Pour the remaining sauce into a bowl for dipping.
To serve place the tofu in a bowl when done cooking and top with the green onion. Serve with toothpicks for dipping.
