SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was VERY tasty!!  Followed the recipe exactly as it was, but didn't use red pepper flakes or sesame seeds, did used toasted sesame oil, used ginger powder (1/2 t), added fresh broccoli and fresh carrots, no scallions, and used agave.  We put it over brown rice.  Adding it to my recipe rotation!

I made this without the sesame and cornstarch and on the grill.  I pressed the tofu, then marinated the tofu for about an hour.  It was amazing!

We really liked this recipe.  I had to cut the sweetener down though.  I used about 1/2 cup maple syrup and I could have decreased it a little bit more.  I added some zucchini strips in with the tofu. Overall a very good recipe, that I would made again.

I forgot to take out the sesame seeds I left toasting in the oven.
I had no sesame oil and used a touch of Olive oil instead. I forgot the garlic. No scallions either.
I used maple syrup as my sweetener, slightly less than 2/3 cups and added more tamari than called for.Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Except I used powedred ginger instead of fresh. Used flour not cornstarch. Served over brown rice. Plenty of sauce to be had.
IT WAS SO GOOD!
im sure its even  better as written

This recipe is wonderful!! It was so good, I recommended my Omni mother to make it with meat for the rest of the family. I don't usually do that, but this was too good for anyone to miss out on. Will make again, and again, and again!
