This recipe turned out a really impressive looking and tasty stir-fry, one garlic lovers are sure to enjoy. With a few minor tweaks, I found the sauce was absolutely delicious, loved the sweet with the garlic. Just personal preference, but I was worried with that much soy it would be too salty, so I only used 2T total soy, and made up the missing liquid with more broth...that was a good change for us. As another reviewer suggested, I used a separate pan to fry the tofu, and used a wok for the rest. I also coated the tofu in a thin layer of cornstarch before frying...something I picked up in another one of your recipes Sharon, and now I can't go back. I eased up on the pepper so it wasn't too spicy for my young diners - and they loved it. Thanks Sharon, I'll make this again and the only thing I'd do differently is add the cashews in at same time as the tofu, so they get nicely coated as well.

This was very good. I couldn't find mushroom soy sauce, so I added a handful of finely sliced shitake mushroom caps after the bell pepper. The next time I make this, I'll do the tofu in the frying pan, but do the stir frying in the wok. I found the green beans kept trying to escape the frying pan. Thanks. This is definitely in the rotation.

I really enjoyed this dish it was a joy to eat and I had to restrain myself at just one helping! I only gave four stars for the following reasons. During the prep instructions it says “combine the next five ingredients” I duly did this then read, “add 1 tsp of the oil to a pan” was the oil that I had just put in the sauce? Uh – oh, but it did say put the next FIVE ingredients in I was worried it would make the sauce greasy. The second point was the recipe called for spring onions and never mentioned them again. I was unsure of where they should go (sauce or pan) so I added some dried spring onion to the sauce instead. Despite the above it turned out well and was delicious! Definitely a keeper!

This was a nice change -- forgot the cashews and I don't think they sell mushroom soy sauce where I live -- added some chopped mushrooms and used the asparagus option. Nice and simple dinner which I enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
