Very Good! I also changed the recipe a bit as did some of the other reviewers. I added some minced garlic and onion to the broccoli. I used tofu that had been frozen thawed drained and then crumbled (it ends up looking something like shredded chicken) because I prefer the texture of tofu prepared this way to that of plain tofu. I piled the brocolli and tofu mixture onto toasted wheat bread for an open face sandwhich. I will definately make this again! Read More

This sandwich would probably be ALOT better if you chilled the broccoli and tofu first...but i put it right into the pita and it ripped a hole in the bottom and the dressing got really watery and didnt have much flavor. I was pretty disappointed Read More

This recipe was good but didn't have zip. Along with the broccoli I added diced onion minced garlic and a squirt of hot sauce. It lengthens the prep time but it zips! Read More

I needed a quick vegetarian meal for my daughter. Unfortunately I didn't read the reviews for this. It was really quite bland as it was. I will definatly try this again with some of the suggested changes such as garlic and onion...maybe a little green or red pepper. I bet it would be great with flavoured tofu as well. Read More

Great mix but quite dry. I had to add lots of extra dressing to moisten it up. Read More
