    1/2 cup reduced fat peanut butter

    1/2 cup light sweetened coconut milk

    1 clove garlic, pressed or minced

    2 tsp. tamarind paste

    3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

    2 Tbsp. light soy sauce

    2 Tbsp. white miso

    1 tsp. Thai chili paste (optional)

    1/2 tsp dried red chili flakes (optional)

    Skewers:
    2 packages Morinaga Silken Tofu - Extra Firm, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices

    2 Tbsp. light soy sauce or tamari

    4 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds

Peanut Sauce:
In a food processor or blender, combine all Peanut Sauce ingredients until creamy.

Skewers:
After removing from the package and slicing into 1/2-inch slices, place on a tray, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 3 hours. Defrost in the microwave, warm water, or overnight in the fridge. Pat dry with a paper towel.
