Tofu cheese in sesame and peanut sauce


- ½ blocks firm tofu cheese
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2.5 cm large piece of fresh ginger (grated)
- 2-3 hot chili peppers
- Broccoli
- Red pepper
- ½ onion, chopped large pieces
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds (little brown)
- 1.5 tablespoons of peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- Hot sauce (ketchup or Tabasco sauce, optional)
- Salt -1 tablespoon sesame oil and 1.5 teaspoon cooking oil


Dry the tofu cheese with easy pressing with paper towel. Cut it on larger cubes. Drain half of grated ginger to get a little juice, then pour juice over tofu cheese and leave it there for at least an hour. The longer it stays the better.
Pestle half the amount of roasted sesame seeds (in pastry bag with rolling pin or in mortar with pestle). Leave it for a while. Grind garlic and hot peppers, and then do some more grinding with roll dough or in mortar. Leave it for a while. In bowl, mix peanut butter, soy sauce, chilly sauce, sesame pestle, garlic, hot peppers and salt, then add 1/3 cups of water and stir until everything is combined. This mixture will be gravy.
Heat one tablespoon of oil in a pan. Place tofu cubes in a single layer and bake on each side for several minutes on medium heat. Remove and place on a platter to stay for a while. Heat the rest of the oil. Add the chopped garlic, broccoli, red pepper (or any other vegetables of your choice) and quickly fry this mixture for a few minutes.
Carefully add the pieces of tofu cheese. Pour all the ingredients for the sauce in the pan. Leave a little and slowly cook, reduce the oven temperature and cover the dish.
At the end, ornament with the rest of the sesame and hot peppers.
