Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cut tofu into 1/2-inch cubes, and put in a large bowl. Add peanuts to tofu, along with green onions.

  • Mash black beans with the flat side of a knife or pound with a mortar and pestle. Combine with peanut oil, sesame oil, and chile bean sauce in a small (1-quart) saucepan, and heat over medium heat until gently sizzling, about 2 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until very fragrant, 45 seconds. Remove from heat, and stir in soy sauce and sugar.

  • Pour sauce over tofu, peanuts, and onions, and add chile oil to taste. With a spatula, distribute seasonings well. (You can make the tofu up to 2 hours ahead, then cover with plastic wrap.)
