  • FIsh sauce is something I don't have on hand either, but the recipe sounded so good I tried it without. It was fantastic! I sent some to a girlfriend and made a separate meal for our husbands (not fans of tofu). Her husband tried it and liked it so much I had to give her the recipe! - 6/29/09

  • this sounds perfect! I never use fish sauce so needless to say I didn't have any around so thanks Drgnflygrl1 for the input. I definitely have red pepper flakes!

    Thanks for sharing everyone! - 6/19/09

  • I followed this method, but I was starving so I ate half the package of tofu, 200 grams, plus a cup of broccoli and 6 baby carrots. I cooked the tofu last and I used cooking spray instead of oil. I also used package stir fry sauce instead of the other ingredients, save garlic. Easy to manipulate! - 1/29/09

  • I added broccoli, tomato wedges, mushrooms, and red pepper flakes (no fish sauce) - FANTASTIC. I'd normally serve it over rice and thought I'd miss it, but I didn't. - 7/12/07
