Even my husband loved it., March 16, 2004 - 10:11 AM
Reviewer: Lynn from Plainfield, CT USA
This recipe was very easy to prepare and my husband, who usually won't eat tofu, loved it! He even requested that I make it again for him this week. He loves spicy foods and this met with his approval. Has a little bite, so adjust spices if needed.
