Anyone know the amounts of soy, chili flakes, & rice vinegar for the tofu marinade? Been winging it but would like to know. Since the recipe is not clear I'm giving it only 1 star. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! This made a light and easy meal for a weeknight and I was able to make a few substations to use what I had on hand. I didn't have any sesame oil so I used coconut oil and in place of the bok choy I used fresh kale and spinach and then added a fresh squash out of the garden. We really enjoyed this meal and will be making it again. Thanks for a great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm making this for the second time in a week, it's that good!! I'm trying to eat less meat and this is a wonderful recipe, the marinade makes the tofu so flavorful. I just throw whatever veggies I have in the fridge in it and it works. Love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this the other night and added a seafood medley to the mix (baby shrimp, calamari, and bay scallops. It was very good - the fish added a new element to just the tofu. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this tonight with soba noodles. Was good but too salty. Need to cut down soy next time for our liking. Also did not use sesame oil as it has a low smoking point and stir fry should be cooked at higher temps so subbed grapeseed oil. Definitely a good starting point but looking to improve sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe closely. We ate the dish no problem and my husband said it was good. It did not blow my mind, but I'm not sure that tofu can. Decent and easy. Would not make for company. Will probably try a different stir fry recipe next time around. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a very simple flavorful stir-fry. I added too much heat, but that's my fault. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty, easy stir fry. Marinating the tofu is a simple, but really important part of the process. I did add some garlic and fresh ginger when I added the tofu to the wok. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was such a lovely, flavorful dish. Perfectly seasoned. Has just a touch of heat so that you could serve it to any guests without worry of offending anyone. Just a very good, very well balanced, easy recipe to make. We followed the instructions exactly, just eye-balling the white wine vinegar, soy sauce, and pepper used in the marinade. Thank you so much, Danny, for this keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
