This dish is similar to a stir-fry but it's cooked in the broiler, not on the stove. Be sure to use extra-firm tofu in this recipe, as it will hold up better than other types of tofu when broiled and tossed.

    This is a super simple and tasty recipe that my 2-year old loves, plus the leftovers make a great lunch the next day. Usually I make extra sauce and serve with brown rice. I've also occasionally substituted parsnips for some of the carrots and after broiling, they are amazingly sweet.

    Loved the recipe, but modified by sauteing the scallions with garlic and seaweed before adding to the final marinade. I also topped off the final product with some gomasio and Sriracha. YUMMMMMMMM.

    Amazingly tasty!!! Loved the flavors and textures! I had never broiled tofu before and was kind of skeptical about it, but I followed the recipe and it turned out so much better than just pan frying it. Will definitely make it again!!

    Thought the lack of garlic was odd initially, but followed the recipe and wasn't disappointed, great flavors!

    Great recipe. I changed it a bit by adding whole garlic with the tofu and carrots while it baked.

    I pan fried the carrots first and then the tofu and had enough marinade for the sauce. I sprinkled some toasted sesame seeds on top for added texture and taste. The flavour really comes from the sauce poured on top. The recipe was fast and easy but only tasted alright.

    I forgot to add that I also included snow peas and served over a small amount of asian style noodles. Parsnips might be a nice addition as well.

    Not only was the broil time too long, but it was VERY bland in flavor. It needs more than soy. Also, there was not any marinade left to toss with again at the end. It just seems to me that it would have been easier to cook in a pan or wok because the veggies burned very quickly. Or maybe roasting at a high temp, tossing just a few times, rather than every 5 minutes as needed to prevent burning following these directions?

    Pretty good and easy. A bit plain. Broiler temp should be 525. Toss carrots often to avoid burning them.
