Tofu Satay With Peanut Sauce

Discover the most superb and scrumptious satay with Megan Evans’ recipe from MegUnprocessed. Her slightly sweet and savory peanut sauce is like heaven on the tongue and goes so well with the tofu skewers. Air frying the marinated tofu slices makes them crisp and delightfully dippable. I love that she uses tart and tangy pineapple juice to give her sauce an extra perky punch. Excellent as an appetizer or even as a main course for the family with a few extra add-ons. But, beware, you may find that you’re eating all of the satay yourself––it’s that good!
