Cook's Notes

The vegetables and marinade can be prepared ahead. You can use 1 pound peeled, deveined shrimp instead of tofu; the cooking times are the same.

    Excellent, affordable vegetarian asian dish--follow directions, turns out crisp, and perfectly coated with soy-sesame marinade, I added waterchestnuts and shelled edamame, wow, all I can say is I'm eating in a little more with this dish!

    Delicious! I just made this for the hubby and I last night. One suggestion; the tofu tastes better if you marinate it for more than 5 minutes (left mine in for 20min... Although the next time I make this dish it will probably be more like 1 hour).

    This recipe was good and easy. I had to make some substitutions for what I had on hand but still great. I used medium firm tofu (just handle with care), napa cabbage, onions, and frozen broccoli. I served this with udon noodles...YUM!

    This was fantastic!!! My kids have tried tofu before and have never been hip on it. I made this and they LOVED it. The sauce is flavorful and the vegetables came out perfect. Thank you! I will make this many times more!

    Yeah - a vegetarian recipe! Instead of cornstarch for thickener, I'd use kuzu (made from seaweed).
