Top Review by Chef Tweaker

I did like this recipe but I did not "love it" as is. I will try less spice next time because the cinnamon was too strong for me. I made a stir fry with the veggies I had on hand which went perfect with it. Beets, baby bok choy, fennel bulb and some swiss chard leaves. Just at the end of stir frying I poured some of the sauce in from this recipe and cooked it in. Then I combined the tofu and the stir fry. Thanks for the recipe. I will keep playing around with it to get it perfect for me.
