Coconut Crusted Tofu + Sriracha Peanut Dipping Sauce [VIDEO]

I'll just start off by saying that I've never loved a recipe quite like this one. I've been obsessed with the Youtube channel + blog hotforfood, and I saw them prepare this tofu in taco form. I wasn't in the mood for tacos, so I just made the tofu, and on the fly, this spicy + sweet peanut sauce. Oh my. You could do so many great things with this tofu and sauce - put in a salad, roll it up in some spring rolls, by itself as an appetizer, on a sandwich, or like hotforfood, put them in some tacos! Either way, I'm sure you will enjoy this crunchy, healthy, and hearty recipe. 
The peanut sauce I just made up with ingredients I thought would go well together and it turned out SO well. It is the perfect compliment to the tofu as a dressing or dipping sauce, and customizable to however spicy or sweet you'd like it to be.
