Hello & Happy Wednesday!!
We typically focus on all things brunch on the weekend, but I wanted to share one of the new concepts from this week! Why? Because it came out so good! Back around 2007 I dined at the widely loved Mr. Chows in NYC for the first time. The one dish they were known for at the time. was the “chicken satay”. While at my core I was plant based I was curious about the flavors and had to try. Although much time has passed, the flavors they captured really created an experience to remember. So much so that today, I had to finally give in and replicate it with tofu!
The traditional dish packs heavy cream, chicken stock, chicken itself, and so on and so forth. However, you can easily recreate this dish without compromising flavor by just packing on more. Don’t like tofu? I promise with everything that’s going on in this dish, you’ll quickly forget that it’s even tofu!
What’s great about this dish? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs tons of flavor, packs plant protein, the dipping sauce is sweet with a lil heat, has notes of coconut milk/lime/peanuts, you can use the sauce or marinade for other dishes, it can easily be made in bulk, perfect for any season, perfect for entertaining, can be paired with rice to create more of a lunch or dinner, and just such a staple recipe!
If you love all things tofu or peanut sauce, you have to try this new Tofu Satay with peanut dipping sauce!
