This has got to be one of the best tofu stir frys ever! Absolutely loved the taste and tweaked the flavours to my liking. Deserve a round of applause!

I just had a foodgasm. Excellent flavor, beautiful dish. I like the idea of marinating the tofu. Well darn, guess I'll have to make it again...

Excellent flavors! Made with bok choy fresh picked from our garden, which was amazing. Good served with rice noodles.

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.
