    I don't make tofu very often but this was delicious. I used firm and drained it paper towels for about an hour. I would double the sauce/vegetables next time. I also used green pepper instead of red, used powdered ginger since I didn't have fresh and topped it with dry roasted peanuts... yum.

    My husband said he hated tofu, until I made this. He is now hooked on it, I will be looking for more tofu recipes. Thank You!

    This was by far one of my favorite recipes. Absolutely delicious! I made with jasmine rice instead of regular white, but that was the my only modification. My husband even requested that we have it again this week.

    Very bland, even after I added sauteed mushrooms. Would suggest doubling the sauce. And the sprouts did not go with this at all.

    First time making tofu and it turned out great. I decided after reading another review that I should add a little more taste to the veggies. I sprinkled red pepper flakes and added the juice of a mandarin orange. Yum. I did not do the sprouts, and I served over brown rice. Nice taste and texture. My boyfriend kept giving me approving nods so I will make this again!

    Made this for my hubby who is not a tofu lover and it got good reviews. I thought it was really good as well, I will not go to the trouble of buying the sprouts next time, they spoil too quickly. I also put in a splash of dark sesame oil, just because its delicious and I think that lends a great flavor. We didn't serve over rice, but I plan to in the future. Really good!!

    My first time cooking tofu, turned out to be a good recipe choice. I added more veggies (bok choy, broccoli) and tripled the sauce. Also omitted the sprouts. I thought it had great flavor, though I didn't measure out the ginger, just grated a bunch into the pan. Served over brown rice cooked in chicken broth. Will definitely make again and experiment with other veggies as well.

    Not bad. Quick, cheap, and tasty. Makes 3 good single servings, and with a simple side makes four good servings.

    I didn't have sprouts to add, so I just topped with cilantro. My two year old asked for thirds, that NEVER happens. Full review with revisions at
