    Even if you don't think you like tofu, try this one. It is amazing. I didn't have shitakis, so used creminis. Was just fine. I've made it several times, sometimes doing all the veggies at once and sometimes separating the cooking as called for in the recipe. No difference. I have served it with brown rice and also with couscous believe it or not. Healthy and filling and absolutely delicious.

    With over 50% of the recipe's calories coming from fat how is this "light". I'm sure its tasty but it won't be on my dinner table any time soon.

    The only problem with this was that I wanted to eat too much.

    Delicious! My whole family loved this and I will make it over and over. I substituted with chicken broth and I added more garlic.

    Really tasty. It all went together very well. Next time, I will make more mushrooms - they were delicious. Instead of honey, I used agave. For the rice, I used short grain brown rice cooked with a bit of coconut oil and then added chopped cashews at the end. And, I coated the tofu in sesame seeds when I was cooking it. Yummy. My husband's only complaint was that I should have cut the carrots and peppers thinner. That's pretty good! Definitely a keeper.

    Well, I'm giving this five stars because I love that more recipes are being published that don't require meat. I made this last night and it was missing something. I pierced the tofu and doubled the marinade - I even let it marinade for a couple hours. Now, I can eat tofu plain and be happy, and that's what this tasted like. The tofu didn't have any flavor to it from the marinade. The veggies picked up the flavor, but I don't think any meat eater will say, "Hot damn! Who needs to kill an animal when tofu tastes this good?"

    This wasn't bad. I found it somewhat on the bland side so I hit it with some additional soy sauce to give it taste.

    wilkii, look a little closer -- it's not a flat pan. She used a grill pan in the video, so the tofu absolutely would have grill marks as shown. :)

    bland and very much not worth the time to julliene all those veggies. the only flavor I really got was salty form the soy sauce and stock/broth. Neither my boyfriend nor I finished what was on our plate. Will not make again.

    Delicious! Next time I will cut the tofu into little cubes as my family prefers it that way.

    We're we supposed to not notice the grill marks that magically appear in a flat pan ? Lol?...either way...it does look like a must try
