Tasted really close to P.F. Changs...however I used to work there and I know they use different kinds of tofu for different dishes...the tofu for this dish in particular is 5 Spice tofu...available at any Asian market...if you can't find it ask someone...This tofu is much more firm and way less moist than regular tofu...I think by doing so this recipe will receive a much better rating!

There are several vegetarian "oyster" sauces on the market and I had no trouble located them on a quick google search. If you don't have access to a good Asian market, here is at least one handy source I found.<br/>http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/product/vegetarian-oyster-sauce-17-oz?source=pjn&subid=21181

I tried this recipe on a Friday . It was just perfect ! Very close to PF changs. I added spring onion whites and I added a little more chinese chilli sauce as I am an Indian and love spicy food ! Absolutely loved it ! My hubby kept praising the food !! Will make it for my friends soon !! Thanks for sharing

This was excellent! Vegetarian oyster sauce keeps it truly vegetarian (vegan!). I thought , it was excellent. The texture was awesome and the flavors were great. There are a lot of ingredients, but it comes together really quickly and has become a favorite!

Really simple to make. I added a little more garlic chilli sauce and hot mustard to the special sauce. Gave it a little more kick. Overall very yummy and pretty healthy!

This does indeed taste really close to the restaurant version, but two things : definitely use 5 spice tofu, as previously recommended, and no oyster sauce. The restaurant couldn't call this a vegetarian dish on the menu if it had oyster sauce.

I really liked this recipe. I am a vegetarian so i skipped the oyster sauce and i don't think it matters at all! I think it came out great. Next time I plan on baking the diced tofu a bit less. I put very little red onion and i am glad i did.

the best thing about this recipe was the spicy sauce. otherwise a very poor imitation of PF Changs. what a waste of time and effort. Way too mushy and wet - not at all like PF Changs.

It seems like it will work...however Oyster Sauce is not vegetarian as it is made with oysters!!!
