These are sooooooo good! I didn't have high hope as I was mixing it all together, it didn't seem there was going to all that much flavor, but there was plenty and it the flavor was perfect! I almost left the water chestnuts out and I'm glad I didn't, they really added the extra little something. I use of for the sauce, it is plenty sweet, but goes well with the jewels. I wouldn't change a thing. I only made 1/3 of the recipe and wish I would have made the whole batch. I wonder if these freeze well? Thanks so much for sharing this total keeper recipe.

This was very yummy! I found the sauce really sweet when I tasted it by itself (I used pineapple juice). But when it's put together with the meatballs, the two really went together well. I served it over barley. Very hearty and good. The only issue I had was that my meatballs didn't stick together very well. Not sure why! Thanks so much for sharing! :O)

This was excellent! Really looks nice also. Note, if you keep kosher, it's pareve. I substituted bamboo shoots for water chestnuts for my husband who was on a low carb diet when I tried it. Also, cooked all the vege's with a little peanut oil in the microwave for a few minutes before adding the tofu. The sauce was fine, but I made another one in addition, again for the low carb DH. Mix equal parts soy sauce and rice vinegar. Add hot sauce to taste.

This was amazing! I actually cut the recipe in half and it turned out perfectly. I didn't have a green pepper on hand, so I made up the difference with a bit more mushroom and water chestnuts. Next time will try with the green pepper too, because I KNOW I will be making this again

Awesome tofu dish, and the zingy sauce complements this so well! I followed your lead and used straight pineapple juice. The scallions and other vegetables give it great texture, so it's not like you're eating a big chunk of tofu. Even hubby liked it - and he's not normally a real big fan of tofu (I let him try it before telling him what it was ;). Thanks for posting yet another super-simple and tasty vegetarian recipe!
