Mmmm, this is so good. The store was out of extra-firm tofu though, so I had to use the firm kind... It kind of fell apart in the sauce and looked like a chunky tofu scramble, but it still tasted incredible. The only change I would maybe make next time is cutting down the amount of sesame oil in half, as it was a bit overpowering.

Love, love, love this. Made for ZWT and wouldn't change anything either. Wonderful spicy tofu nestled with the creamy avocado and other veggies in a sauce with a nice kick. It is hopping right into my best of 2011 cookbook! Thanks for posting.
