    I used frozen drained tofu for this so maybe that's why it soaked up the soy sauce so quickly. The salt in the seasoning salt + the soy sauce made it a bit too salty. I had already cut back on soy sauce and oil based on other reviews. Tasty but too much saltiness. Served it on rice and the outer coating getting on the rice was nice.

    I have NEVER liked tofu, but I have to tell you that this is quite good! I tried it only because of the rave review and the fact that I just happened to have nutritional yeast in my cupboard. I bought the yeast over a year ago and never used it until I tried this recipe. I did slice it, drain it, and freeze it first, because I wanted it to have more of a chicken texture, as one reviewer suggested. I also cut down on the soy sauce and salt. It was was very yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    Cut the oil back to 1 1/2 T and it was more than enough for me. The flavors all together in this are great, tho. I probably cut back on soy and salt as well but didn't really measure. I'll try this again with a firmer tofu. Yum!
