SO HOW'D IT GO?

Very good. Big hit with the guys tonight. Browned tofu separately with sesame seed oil. I used a bag of frozen stir fry veggies with my own sliced zucchini and onion. Easy fast and yummy.

my husband has made this several times and it is always delicious. he follows the recipe loosely-- I'm not sure exactly what changes he makes but we don't have the Vegeta spice mix so he improvises and I think also adds crushed red pepper.  We have it with these thin soba noodles from our asian market and a subset of the veggies.  YUM
