  • The flavor was pretty bland, but the ease of preparation made it worth it. I added some cayenne pepper to give it some kick. (Not sure why it's called "spicy" as no spice was added.) I plan on making it again, but I'll mess around with the seasoning some. - 1/12/09

  • I've never prepared tofu at home but always like it at Chinese restaurants. This was really easy to make, and at 300 calories per serving was a great dinner served with some brown rice. - 3/1/07
