Comments on this Recipe

Good, however I recommend bit less oil and double cashews.

Taste was good but not pleased with tofu texture.

I love this recipe. I actually just use extra firm tofu, pressed and drained. Cut into cubes, cook for about 10 minutes in my cast iron skillet. Then I take that out and stir fry the veggies, add the tofu back in and coat with the sauce. Also, you can mix up the veggies, carrots, broccoli, squash, whatever you need to get rid of in the fridge. I just make sure I use a pound since that's what the recipe calls for. Quick, easy and YUMMY!

Sounds like something u might like....

@Denise Gross: Tofu's texture isn't the most interesting, although it is a great ingredient. There are things you can do to change it, though. You can dry it off and roast it in the oven. If you freeze it, the ice crystals slice it up in interesting ways that some people say reminds them of meat (not that I'm yearning after the bad old days!) Or you could use tofu's more interesting cousin, tempeh. Mmm, hungry now.

We like this dish a lot. We like tofu which we press and drain then fry a little more than most recipes suggest for a nice texture.

Loved it! We have garlic allergies so I doubled the ginger. Fantastic! I loved the tofu in it. I used extra firm tofu, pressed it, then marinated the cubes in the sauce for an hour before making the meal. Just delicious!

Made this . . . is was delicious!

My 6 and 4 year olds were not fond of it however, my husband and I loved it. Delicious.
