    This recipe is SO simple. I'm a big fan of tofu and this is one easy way to make it. I always have tofu left over after I made miso soup so this recipe is perfect for using up the remaining tofu. It's so simple that I sometimes make it at work for lunch!  -  26 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes Southeast Asia)
