“I have been a vegetarian for only 2 months now and wanted to find a recipe that would make tofu taste good! After looking at many recipes I came up with this which combines what I think are the best parts of many recipes. I didn't measure the ingredients so I will give estimates here which will work but feel free to adjust to your personal taste. This really is a special recipe in my opinion that even meat lovers will enjoy.”
