    My vegetarian friend Matthew and I get together to cook now and then (he being a newbie chef), and this was the first dish we made as his introduction to veggie cooking. Very tasty! Based on a recipe from Curtis Aikens.

      Good recipe, but perhaps a bit bland. My BF made this for dinner the other day, served over orzo. He said he fried the tofu for about 10 minutes, but it did not brown, or subsequent cooking pretty much erased whatever color or texture came from fying. He used less oil and peanuts instead of cashews, though I think cashews definitely would have been better. Also, snow peas were overdone (again, sorry, not recipe's fault I think) so don't overcook them. Sesame oil and more garlic might help. Mild taste, better for a family with kids perhaps. Sorry I couldn't rate this better, then again note that I didn't make it! I had second thoughts about rating this at all, but I still think it needed more flavor. Maybe I will try making this myself again and will rerate. Thanks!

      My family loved this recipe. Very simple to make. I was in a rush so I used frozen snowpeas and it was so amazing. Even my 2 year old daughter loved it. Thanks for the great recipe.
