Tofu and Vegetable Stir-Fry

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by Crystal Rose

I followed the recipe exactly and didn't like how the tofu turned out. It didn't have much flavor or a nice texture. I used extra-firm tofu with the water squeezed out and it still came out a little crumbly. Maybe it should be cooked on its own in the wok to brown the sides before putting in the sauce, or a marinade could make it more flavorful. The sauce was very good though, and the vegetables came out great. This recipe would be tasty with shrimp or chicken. I might try this again with a different method of cooking the tofu or with a light meat.
