    Yum! My toddler loves you for this! A great mix of tastes. We only have ketchap manis in the house at the moment for the soy and the slightly sweeter taste works well.

    When I was living alone during school, I was making this all the time! I'd make it at least once every other week with a baked potato and lemon garlic greens. Now that there's more than just me to cook for, I've had to add some variety to my cooking, but this is still a super easy and accomodating dish for a busy weeknight. I've made this with and without the ginger and mushrooms at various times. It's best with all the ingredients, but works in a pinch when the fridge is low on ingredients. Just make sure you always have a bottle of minced garlic, some low-sodium soy sauce and tofu on hand.

    Another great tofu recipe from Bergy, easy to prepare, chewy on the outside and almost creamy on the inside. Dh doesn't mind the idea of tofu but doesn't like many of the ways it's prepared, but he liked this one. I added some chopped scallions for color and flavor (and because I had them on hand ;o). I also turned the cubes after the initial broiling and broiled the other sides a bit more to get that nice browned, chewy edge everywhere. Served it over jasmine rice with asparagus on the side. Thanks!

    I made this with tempeh and it was very salty. But, it had a good flavor. I will make this again with probably half of the soy sauce.

    Holy salty batman! Made this with tempeh and the saltiness was overpowering- was very delicious but couldn't eat too much of it a time- used low-sodium soy sauce as well. Strange. Definitely liked the taste (despite saltiness) and it gets bonus points for its simplicity. I think it literally took me 15 minutes total. Will try again and see if the salt eases off on the second batch.

    Really delicious!! I used a few more mushrooms and substituted 1 T of the soy sauce for Allegro Hickory Smoke Marinade. Also, I had to cook it longer than your instructions but that's probably because my oven is 12 years old and I like my tofu dry. I just flipped it several times and broiled it longer and it was wonderful. Thank you.
