  1. Press the tofu for 30 minutes either using a tofu press (affiliate link) or by placing the tofu on a plate, with another plate on top of it and then piling some heavy stuff on top, like a heavy pot.
  2. While the tofu is pressing prepare the marinade sauce. Add the soy sauce, peanut butter, brown sugar, dried basil and garlic powder to a dish and use a whisk to mix together.
  3. When the tofu is pressed, cut each block into 5 or 6 strips and then place them in the marinade sauce, using a teaspoon to put marinade sauce on top of the tofu strips as well so that there is marinade on the top and bottom of the tofu.
