    Very, very good recipe! This was the first time I cooked with tofu, and am glad it was this dish that I tried it with. Will go on to use tofu again and it was thanks to this dish. Thnx for posting mielhollinger!

    Very good. I used regular soy sauce, frozen broccoli thawed, and a couple zucchini. I also added sesame oil instead of seeds. We really liked it, very filling and healthy. I often add a few raisins for a bit of a sweet taste.

    The red peppers and broccoli ended up soft and soggy because the recipe stated they cook for 5 minutes, then 2 minutes, then another 5 minutes - total 12 minutes. I usually stir fry for a short time eg 3-5mins total, and opt for crunchy vegetables.
