I did not want to rate this recipe because I made so many changes. I omitted the bean sprouts and used half a yellow bell pepper and half a red one. I also added corn starch to the sesame seeds before coating the tofu. This dish came out fantastic! I sauteed the garlic, ginger, and bell peppers in the leftover oil (which I used half sesame and half extra-virgin olive oil for) then added the rice vinegar and I added soy sauce at this point as well. I served this over white rice with steamed broccoli on the side. It was delicious!!!
