  1. Made this for a quick lunch that was as enticing to look at as to devour. I used some Ramen noodles, and followed the recipe exactly except; I threw some slices of onion along with the broccoli and tofu. My tofu was a teriaki sauce was flavored and had a bit of garlic included. Didn't really add to much extra, very filling and great tasting. Thank you Dreamer this was absolutely great! Made for *ZWT4* May 2008.
  2. Tasty and very easy to make. I used Kikkoman Stir-Fry Sauce, will use a bit more next time. If I use tofu again, I'll marinate it in the sauce. Shrimp would be wonderful in this dish.
  3. I think this recipe depends upon the flavor of the stir fry sauce. It doesn't have much of its own flavor, so we added some carrots, 3 green onions and I shook a little garlic powder on my portion. I used recipe#87748 for the stir fry sauce and bean thread noodles (my kids like those) and it turned out good. The kids didn't like the tofu much, so we could try it with shrimp next time. Made for Humble Soybean game.
  4. Very good recipe which we enjoyed! I wasn't sure when to add the peanut sauce so I just added it with the stir-fry sauce. Thanks for sharing!
