This is a realy great vegan recipe. I allowed it to marinade for 30 minutes, and I think that was enough. I never tried quinoa before, but I find that I really enjoy it.

Another winner!!! If we had to pick a ZWT Best Chef you would have my vote :) This was a super easy dish and tasted FAB! I used the frozen tofu method because I too find it helps soaked up the marinade. I only had time to marinate for 20 minutes but this seemed sufficient. I only had white miso on hand so I used that. I used green beans but next time I will add other veggies too... Broccoli, bok choy, possibly capsicum YUM! I had a jar of grated ginger on hand and no fresh so I had to sub this and even though I'm not a big fan of jarred ginger it was still great! Next time I will make sure I use fresh and I imagine it will be even better. Thanks again. Made for ZWT 6 - Zingo (Voracious Vagabonds)

My BF and I both enjoyed this immensely. The only thing I would suggest is to add mirin for a little bit of sweetness (or honey, etc.). My store only had red quinoa, so we used that. The only difference was that we omitted the sprouts altogether (seemed unnecessary) and used mild white miso (more than 1 teaspoon). We thought the directions seemed unnecessarily complicated too, but whatever, we managed to follow them more or less correctly. Very good for you and yummy :) Made for ZWT VI.

Delish! I have to say that I wasn't sure we'd like it as I was making it, but we did. I used mung bean sprouts and doubled up on the tofu and sauce. Made for April 09 veg swap.
