1 package (14 ounces) extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained well
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon shoyu
2 teaspoons light brown sugar or to taste
1 teaspoon grated ginger or to taste

1 small carrot, peeled and shredded

Cut tofu crosswise into 8 slices; cut each slice into two triangles. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Carefully place tofu in skillet; cook about 5 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy. Transfer tofu to plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil; set aside.

Whisk together all sauce ingredients. Thin sauce with additional coconut milk, one tablespoon at a time, if necessary; set aside.

Heat pita or naan bread, according to package instructions. Top each with 4 pieces of tofu, shredded carrot, red pepper, green onion, Chinese parsley, and peanut sauce and fold. Serve with optional lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
