My daughter and I share a love for this delicious, nutritious, and high-protein meal. Try different ingredients to suit your taste. We enjoy this meal at breakfast, but it would be suitable for any time of day. Add spinach, mushrooms, peanuts, or cashews as a topping. Serve over noodles or rice. Use additional nutritional yeast to thicken the sauce or add water to thin it.

Somewhat to my surprise I liked this! I mean it's tofu right and it isn't camouflaged by a sauce so it's brown sort of... but it was tasty! Had a somewhat meat-like texture and a rich flavor. Mushrooms would be a nice addition. I put some on top of our dinner salads with a balsamic dressing. It would go well with brown rice too. Worth trying! Read More

This recipe was fantastic! I added some raw cashews and served it over rice. My kids were less enthusiastic but I will definitely be making it again and experimenting with different add-ins. Read More

Very nice and tasty! I had doubts about the amount of nutritional yeast thinking it would be too much but it was just right. I added a little broccoli and tomato and served over rice. I used only 1 teaspoon of low-sodium soy sauce to reduce sodium but I think it would taste better with the full amount. For us this was more like three generous servings. Read More
