This was very tasty. I did modify it a bit, according to what I had around. One half a yellow onion instead of scallions and the addition of a green pepper on the verge of shrivelling up. The sauce was nice though. I'll use that again!
Easy, delicious stir-fry. I made this using mlok's recipe# 101891 Golden Fried Tofu Bites. The cornstarch/flour mix in the tofu bites added a bit of thickener to this stir-fry and so I added some extra broth.
This was inexpensive, quick, easy, and tasty. I doubled it to serve 4 people (2 adults, 2 kids), and had a bit left over, so I would say that it serves 2-3 as written.
