Vegan Spicy Lemongrass & Coriander Tofu with Rice

I love lemongrass and coriander. Two of my favourite herbs of all time.
This is a quick marinated tofu dish for dinner.
I change the original recipe removing salt and all vegetables oils. I also replaced the sugar for stevia

Reduce the heat to low and cook until the shallots are soft.. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
3. Add the tofu mixture, turn so it cooks evenly, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add half the peanuts.
4. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving plate. Garnish with the remaining peanuts and serve immediately with steamed rice.
