Any thoughts on making the sauce ahead of time and freezing it?

I used Kale and Red Chard in place of spinach and it turned out great. Although next time I make it I will definitely add more garlic and ginger along with the red pepper idea. I was thinking all along it would need more of these things for a stronger flavor but just went along with what the recipe said, darn it.

This was good but needed a little something. Since I was using my cookbook, I didn't see the other suggestion here--adding chili paste, extra garlic, extra ginger--all of which I think would be good. I thought adding red pepper flavored rice vinegar would have been good.

I cooked this with a friend who only likes mushrooms a little so we divided them in half and added water chestnuts. We also added crunchy peanut butter. We both like the crunch they added.

That made us think adding chopped red pepper or shredded carrots would also taste good and look pretty. Or even chopped cucumber right before serving.

This was the first time either of us had cooked with tofu.

LOVE this recipe! I make it with extra firm tofu and add an extra tsp of ginger and one more garlic clove to give the sauce a little extra kick. The sauce is very versatile, I just add tofu and whatever veggies I have on hand. I also use about half the amount of spinach recommended. So good!!

Add hot thai chili paste for a slightly more adventurous dish!
