This was excellent. I marinated the tofu beforehand as suggested. Will cut down on the oil next time.

I made this today for dinner and it is great! I just stopped eating meat and this was a first great recipe to try. I marinated the tofu with the sauce beforehand like the comments said and then just made the sauce again for the end. I also used half the tofu bc it was my first time trying this. And adding the ginger and garlic made the sauce less spicy which was a plus bc I'm not much of a spicy person. I love this recipe and will definitely be making this again

Have made this twice now and it is phenomenal every time. Easy to make, fast, and delicious. I eat a mostly plant-based diet and my husband still eats meat, but he eats this happily. Our household likes things spicy so we add an additional teaspoon or two of sriracha. I also double the number of mushrooms. Carrots would be a great addition to this, both for flavor and the color addition.

This one has become a favorite in our house-- we make it about once every two weeks. Serve it over quinoa, which we use instead of rice. Very tasty and even my not totally vegetarian husband inhales this one.

Fantastic recipe; wouldn't change a thing. My husband is not a fan of tofu but devoured seconds of this flavorful dish. All the textures mingle very well. Served over brown rice.

Paige Plant - 2013-01-24 20:32:30

tasty!! i love the spiciness mixed with the ginger and with all the sauce you can't taste the tofu. will definitely make this one again.

Kind of bland flavor in spite of great spicy sauce. I'd use only 1/2 the tofu and marinate it in the sauce before cooking, then cut the stems off the mushrooms which I didn't do this time. Maybe add some green onions. Love the peanut idea.

This is awesome! I'm not vegetarian, but I always found tofu an interesting food, it baffled me how I just didn't like it any of the ways I had tried it (I'm usually very open-minded when it comes to food). So this week I decided I was going to try and cook it myself. I marinated it in almost the same sauce as the one added at the end of this recipe (soy sauce and garlic and ginger) for a few hours, then followed the recipe and it was awesome.
