Love it. Easy to make and a great companion to many Asian sauces. I used the Hoisin-Peanut Sauce in my recipe "Thai Basil Rolls With Hoisin-Peanut Sauce". Made for ZWT #6 and I'm a Quisine Queen!!
This was okay. Nothing special, in my opinion, as far as tofu recipes go: There are more exciting things to do with it.
wow...love it. I took the fried tofu cubes, added some steamfresh broccoli, poured on some bottled peanut sauce, mixed it together...yummy dinner in like 15 minutes :-) Thanks
