Directions:

Blend all of the peanut sauce ingredients together until smooth.

In a medium saucier pan over medium heat, toss your cubed tofu with a few spoonfuls of the peanut sauce. Let cook for about 8 minutes, until the tofu is starting to fry a bit. Add the rice and the rest of the peanut sauce and cook for 5 more minutes.

Meanwhile, get your salad ready. Greens on the bottom, avocado swirled on the side.

Top with a scoop of the tofu rice and garnish with crushed peanuts, black pepper, and a dash of cayenne.
