    I prepared this for my friends and it is delicious! I don't know why someone rated it low because it was a wonderful side dish and next time I am going to add chicken to it. Thanks so much for a great recipe.

    I'm sorry, I clicked the wrong rating for you, I wish I could change it. I'm planning to make this recipe this evening. It's simple and quick and I have some tofu that needs using. Thanks for this.

    Edit: I marinated the tofu in tahini and rice wine vinegar. I loved this dish and will make it again.
