I added vegetable broth and made it a little like a broth bowl to avoid dry stickiness from the other comments and it was good.

I added more soy sauce and a teaspoon of prepared stir fry sauce. This turned out great and even my non-vegetarian parents enjoyed this meal. Simple, quick, and satisfying.

This came out terribly for me. I used fresh udon noodles and baked my own tofu. It was very dry and sticky and almost no sauce . When reading the recipe I was surprised it was just the sautéed vegetables with some soy sauce and lemon juice at the end. I made a quick sauce , but even that couldn't save it from the dry stickiness. I make lots of stir fries and have been cooking homemade vegetarian for 20 years.

A little too salty but really good! I used baby bok choy, blanched for a minute before adding to the pan and did a DIY Asian tofu as well with a little sesame oil.

Haven't been able to find baked tofu locally, but did find a do-it-yourself recipe on the tofu package. That worked very well!

Great dish!! Easy to make, super healthy and fabulously delicious. I am(was) not a big fan of tofu, but was pleasantly surprise by the dish as a whole. It's a gotta try dish.

Excellent! I am really surprised at how good.

This is so delicious and fresh! I added some brown sugar to the soy sauce to sweeten it up. Great dish.

My husband isn't into healthy vegetarian food at all, but even he was very excited about this dish!

This is even better than it sounds; I was surprised the first time I made it. Now it's one of my regulars.
