    Delicious sauce, took a little time, but not onerous once prepped. Even my husband liked it. Considering it’s vegan, it’s a great recipe to have in my collection, as I’m cooking for more and more vegans these days.

    Yum! The sauce is to die for and I used the remaining as dressing for the tofu bowl! In my opinion, tofu cooks with a lot better texture with an air fryer. I put the tofu in the air fryer until it became crispy, then marinated it in the sauce for about an hour, before I put it back in the air fryer for another ~ 5 mins. Completely recommend, and now I want to try this sauce with other protein!

    So tasty!! I cooked the spinach and broccoli together on a skillet with some garlic as the tofu cooked to save time. Also put everything in the skillet at the end.

    This ones a keeper! Do it exactly the way it says. I only substituted garbanzo beans with white cannelloni beans.

    awesome recipe! Tastes just like takeout. The tofu didn’t get as crispy as I would have liked but that could have been my bad

    This recipe is very delicious. I used crunchy peanut butter and really loved the texture. However, I did discover that I was sensitive to something in this dish, I got a terrible headache and was super nauseated after eating. None of my ingredients were expired, and I have never had a reaction like this before to tofu or soy sauce with other things, so I’m thinking it’s the combination of the two; perhaps something about soy or MSG. I’ll have to see how I react to things in the future. If you’re someone that has no problem with these ingredients though, go for it!

    Very easy and delicious! And super nutritious meal. I added Edamame instead of chick peas. My super health-minded hubby loved it 💝

    Soo good! Love the sauce I heated it all in the same pan at the end
    Second time we’ve made this, with some modifications and it rocks! I subbed almond butter, olive oil, baby Bella’s for the pb, sesame oil and broccoli, added sliced celery and green onion, which I sautéed with the mushrooms. Topped it off with sesame seeds, sriracha and fresh cilantro. Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmm! Yummy in a bowl!

    As far as taste this is a wonderful dish. The timeing on the original recipe needs to be fixed. If I'm riasting the tofu for 25 min then roasting the broccoli for 20 min then pan frying the tofu after marinating it takes longer than 35 min to make this dish. Just be forwarned for making this in the future.

    Was good but the sauce turned out really thick. I’d say needs something like chicken broth or something to thin it out while having flavor

    This was sooooo delicious! I wish I could make one of these every day. Be sure to save extra sauce to drizzle on top of leftovers!

    One of the best meals I’ve made in a long time! Reduced broccoli & added a red pepper. I also sautéed the broccoli, pepper & added the carrots at end. Also added chickpeas to the tofu coated in sauce, & crisped in the oven. Kept the sauce as a side to drizzle as much as one wants

    Great!!! I marinate the tofu before baking and toss the broccoli and garbanzo beans with the peanut sauce and bake it all. No stove top for me :)

    I made a few minor adjustments: 1) I used agave syrup instead of maple syrup. 2) A little more chili-garlic sauce, 1 T instead of 2 tsp. 3) Sear the spinach in some of the sesame oil (yum!).
