A couple of nights ago, I made two recipes from Wegmans Menu magazine: this one, and a BBQ tofu one. The tofu one did NOT turn out. It called for Wegmans tofu, which comes frozen, and I decided to pan-fry it instead of cooking it on the grill, like it calls for. I don’t know what was in that tofu, but it started puffing up, and it would just never get brown, like I wanted it to. So this recipe was served alongside the puffy tofu. You are basically just mixing ingredients together, like a slaw. Speaking of slaw, the Asian slaw mix that this calls for contains celery. I had to (of course) pick all that out. This had potential, I think, but next time I will leave the slaw out. I just didn’t like it. And the peanut sauce was a little too spicy. Toby liked it, though!
