    Works well with store-bought teriyaki sauce as well and it made making dinner much easier. Bought frozen broccoli and cooked it all together on the same sheet pan.

    Tasty teriyaki sauce. Tofu was a hit with company - even those who don't usually eat tofu.

    Tofu turned out wonderfully. The Teryaki sauce didnt thicken but the flavor was good. I steamed tue veggies first, sauteed celery and carrots with some sesame oil then mixed all the veggies with the sesame seeds, tofu and the sauce to serve.

    I loved the sauce! My tofu turned out a little chewy though, not sure what I did wrong.

    Loved the crispy tofu; I will always make it this way now. I cut down the sugar by 1 tablespoon so it wasn't too sweet, but the sauce was great. Made steamed broccoli and added thinly-sliced red bell pepper to that to soften a bit, then added the veggies and baked tofu to the sauce. Delicious!

    Very good! Was amazed at how well the tofu turned out; perfectly crispy. Went well with sautéed vegetables (1/2 medium yellow onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 sliced carrot and 1 small head of broccoli).

    Good! I had to make a few adjustments to the saucr because I couldnt find everything at the grocery store, and I had quinoa instead of rice with it, but still very good! This was my first time cooking with tofu and it turned out good baking it.

    excellent sauce. I doubled and it was the perfect amount. I also added thecornstarch up front and the sauce thickened perfectly. this would be an amazing dish if you wanted to use chicken.

    this was easier then expected and very tasty! first time preparing tofu for me and it turned out great.
    Grace Broderick a year ago
    Tasted great. Took about an hour or so to make. You need to account time for pressing tofu.
    Erika B a year ago
    This was very tasty! Added more fresh ginger and garlic than in recipe due to personal preference. Coating was quicker to do than in other recipes! Had enough sauce to put Over rice and veggies! Definitely will make again.

    My 14 year old daughter made this and was easy and tasted great.

    It was amazing, however, for a thicker sauce use more cornstarch and water mixture. But it tasted great!

    Amazing!! The sauce is so so good

    Delicious. Made a few adjustments in the sauce - it was too salty. Will definitely make again.
