I made this tonight. I really liked it. I used Tempeh instead of Tofu ( that's all I had) and cut the peanut butter in half. Other than those changes I pretty much stuck to the recipe. ::)


This looks an awful lot like the recipe published by Molly Katzen. If it is based on that recipe, the big difference is that in her recipe, the peanut sauce is simmered. This makes the sauce much, much thicker. For all of you who hated it, try making the sauce by simmering it and then pouring as much as you need on the tofu and broccoli just before you serve it.
