    I very loosely followed this recipe with ingredients I had on hand and it turned out great! I used gardein beefless tips instead of tofu, a homemade hoisin sauce recipe I found on Yummly, and no extra sugar from this recipe (there was a little sugar in the hoisin recipe I found and I didn’t want to make it too sweet). I also cooked some frozen broccoli, then added it in with the gardein and sauce once it was mostly cooked. I’m sure it’d be great as written too, but I improvise a lot on recipes. Served over basmati rice and topped with green onions & sesame seeds.

    this turned out well, but was sweeter than expexted. I think next time I will increase the garlic and ginger slightly and decrease the sugar bya teaspoon

    Amazing! Super easy to make. I added more soy sauce and sesame seed oil than the recipe called for. It did just the trick. Will be making again!

    delicious, definitely will make it again, we can't find sesame oil in Sicily yet, but we used an asian sauce and it worked just fine

    Perfection! Used extra firm tofu pressed and frozen. Marinated for an hour. Used a mix of soy sauce and tamari to reduce the sodium. Nice flavor and semi crisp texture.

    Some mods- I didn’t marinate for 30 minutes. I marinated for 15 minutes and it turned out great! Also used frozen stir fry mix.

    This recipe was my first attempt at using tofu and it turned out great. Easy to make and delicious. I used broccoli, mushrooms and snow peas for veg, and used rice noodles as the bed.

    Tasty dish. Easy to make. I doubled the marinade, took tofu out of marinade with slotted spoon and while it cooked I tossed broccoli in the remaining marinade. I stir fried the broccoli with the tofu and served over rice. Delicious! My daughter and husband enjoyed it with the tofu but have requested I make it with chicken next time. I think it will taste great with chicken too.

    Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly except I started marinating the tofu the night before to save time when I got home from work. This is one of my new faves.

    was wonderful, even my kids loved it! made with brown rice and broccoli. might use a tad less ginger next time as the flavor of it over powered the other flavors. over all, a great healthy meal i will be making on a regular basis!
