This sounds too good! With the combination of the chili flakes and limes it must be wonderful. Thank you for sharing!
It was yummy! (We ate it with the coconut-cilantro couscous…very nice combo!) 😀
The lime and chili flakes sound great! I love adding big flavors like this to tofu.
Thanks Lisa! You kinda have to go big with tofu, otherwise it just tastes like fluffy egg white! 🙂
