  • This was very good. The sweetness of the tofu mixture paired with the brussel sprouts and cilantro made a great combination. This was my first time making something with brusel sprouts and Im glad I chose this dish. Sometimes tofu can feel kind of "meh" but we actively went back for seconds here. - 2/18/14
