      Delicious. I first made this about two months ago, and have since made it at least 10 times (frequent requests)! We top it with chopped cashews and fresh cilantro, and serve with rice or potatoes.

      Absolutely delicious. If you put all the tofu in at once, the liquid will come out and you'll think it's just going to saute rather than brown. The liquid eventually evaporates and then the browning begins. Alternatively, you could add the tofu in small batches to brown. However, whichever way you do it, don't skip the browning step as it adds a lot to the texture. What a great dish. Very savory. Should probably be served with rice or something else bland as a counterpoint.

      Excellent! Very, very tasty and quick and easy. I will make this frequently. My one year old even liked it. I cut the tofu in slabs rather than chunks. We did it sans almonds, too. Went great with some pasta salad.
