    Hey Jude's Note:

    I love tofu and this is a recipe that I adapted from Sunset Magazine. The original recipe calls for cabbage, I use lettuce instead. Use cabbage if you desire.

      I just used the tofu part of the recipe to use in place of the usual meat that I make and really liked how they turned out.The marinade is really great. I added some of the marinade to my husbands ground meat and he really liked it. Lots of fresh, spicy flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Super easy and yummy. I removed the moisture from the tofu by placing heavy pans on top. I also chose to use both lettuce and cabbage for the garnish and added a small carrot for color. Didn't use the skewers but simply pan fried the tofu in a little bit of oil. Garnished with lime juice. Love this. Will make again and again.

      I found these simple to make and they were very much enjoyed. A nice change and a new staple fast food. I used cabbage and put a little olive oil in the skillet. Thanks for the recipe!
