Creamy and Spicy Peanut Butter Baked Tofu

I don’t know whether there is anything I love more on the planet than nutty spread. It’s one of my preferred fixings to cook with for one explanation: It’s incredible in both sweet and exquisite dishes.

Truly, it’s so adaptable you can make anything from nutty spread and jam smoothies to peanut spread treats, to nutty spread noodles.

This tofu formula is anything but difficult to make, sound, veggie lover and is extraordinary for kids! (Despite the fact that I would simply forget about the zest in case you’re making it for kids.)
