1block extra firm tofupressed to remove excess water
Preheat the oven to 350° F, and get your tofu started in the press. The time it takes to make the sauce should be plenty of time for it to press down nicely.
Take that block of tofu and slice it into cutlets. You want 8 cutlets when you're all done slicing. Arrange your cutlets in a greased 8x8" glass baking pan.
Put the ginger, garlic, peanut butter, soy sauce, lemon juice, sriracha, and 2 tablespoons of water into your blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, adding water as needed to get things moving.
Pour the sauce over the tofu, making sure each cutlet gets a nice coating, then bake for 30 minutes.
If you can't find fresh ginger, you can use a teaspoon of ground ginger instead. Fresh will give you a much better flavor, but in a pinch, ground is fine.You can use two teaspoons of garlic powder instead of fresh, if needed, though fresh will give you better flavor.For the lemon juice, you can substitute two tablespoons of rice vinegar. Either works well here!About the water: How much water you will need depends on many factors: your blender, the type of peanut butter you use, and how much Sriracha you add. Start with the two tablespoons of water, then add more by the tablespoon, as needed, until you get a thick, pourable, creamy peanut sauce.
