  • In the instructions it says "add tofu mixture". What tofu mixture? That was the first time I saw it mentioned. - 7/7/08

    In the intro for the recipe, it says you could add sauted tofu if you wanted to - I should have said add edamame, tofu or other protien substitute

  • This looks so yummy- think I might add some chick peas to up the protein and make a complete meal. - 6/1/08

    I like to stir in Edamame - which also rounds it out. I am not much into tofu, but a lot of people like that in it, too.
