Amazingly fast and tasty recipe, very healthy too. Even the husband (not normally a huge tofu fan) enjoys it. I love it with tons of garlic but you can use less if you must. The oyster sauce I don't measure so it's approximate. It's pretty salty so use it to your taste. You could serve it with cooked white rice, but it's just as good plain.

  • Add the frozen vegetables to the same skillet and cook vegetables according to package directions, substituting chicken broth for the water, and seasoning with the remaining oyster sauce. When vegetables are cooked, mix the tofu garlic mixture back into the pan, and heat through. Serve plain or over rice.

Wonderful easy recipe. I omitted the chicken broth and oyster sauce because we're vegetarians and added a little extra garlic and tons of soy sauce instead. I served them over mei fun noodles...yum. Just as good the next day too! Read More

hint for the tofu this is so much better if you can get the tofu as dry as possible. Try pressing it between two plates. Put the tofu on one plate then put another plate on top of it w/something heavy like some books or a watermelon top of it then just dump the extra water out. I do it for an hour or so because I like the texture of the tofu to be dry! Great recipe!!! (not usually a tofu lover either!) Read More

Fast easy and delicious. I would recommend getting the firmest tofu you can and stir-frying it a few minutes before you add the garlic so it takes on a firmer more "fried" texture and is not too squishy. Also I found that after I cooked the frozen veggies I had quite a bit of liquid left over so I added some cornstarch water and let it set a few minutes after I turned off the heat. This made a delicious sauce when it thickened up a bit. I also used a little more oyster sauce. Read More

Fried the tofu first and set aside. I added fresh asparagus onion and yellow bell pepper (no frozen veggies). I also added a teaspoon of black bean sauce instead of fish sauce turend out great. Served over jasmine rice. Read More

This recipe is great as is. I also tried a variation. I first sauteed one onion and a few fresh mushrooms then added the tofu garlic and oyster sauce. I didn't set the mixture aside. Instead I continued cooking and added one bag of fresh organic spinach instead of the frozen vegetables. I finished cooking with the chicken broth and oyster sauce. This is great over brown rice.

My boyfriend and I devoured the whole thing last night it was that good. I added 10 cloves of garlic (I love garlic) but I still didn't find it that garlicy...I think the oyster sauce cancels out some of the garlic. I added fresh bok choy carrots a bit of fresh grated ginger and 1/2 onion. Amazing! I will be eating this one regularly. Read More

Good flavour. Used fresh gai lan and red pepper instead of frozen veggies which made the broth a bit watery so corrected with corn starch. Vegetarians can find sauce substitute (oyster-flavoured mushroom sauce) at asian groceries. Read More

Very good. Next time fry the tofu in oil first then proceed with the recipe. Otherwise the tofu is slimy and mushy. Read More
