      Just the right sweetness. I halved the tofu though, using just one block of firm tofu. That was the right amount, but I made the full recipe other than that. I used enoki mushrooms, red instead of green bell pepper, and I added diagonally cut bok choy when I added the tofu cubes. It was delicious. My husband said it needed more green (we didn't use the green pepper) so my leftovers which are amazing! have some fresh de-stemmed and de-veined, roughly chopped kale that had been tossed with some olive oil and sea salt earlier today. OMG! I had a hard time stopping the fork before storing it away for tomorrow's lunch.

      Delicious!! The sauce is truly fantastic and I had all of the ingredients in the house already to make this other than the mushrooms. Outside of that, I made this recipe as written adding in a full 1/2 teaspoon of the cayenne. Wonderful recipe Sharon, thank you for sharing!

      This is our new favorite stir-fry recipe! The sauce is amazing and it uses items I always have available! I did marinate and fry the tofu first, as I do with all stir-fries, it gives the tofu a much better flavor and texture in the dish. Thank you so much for posting this great recipe! We will definitely be making it again :)
