I really really wanted to like this dish, but it was just bland. I even used the sauce for dipping sauce, which made it a little better, but not much. Unlike other reviewers, I had no problem with the coconut not sticking.

Really delicious! I skimped a tiny bit on the red pepper and it was just spicy enough for me (probably used about 1/2-3/4 of a teaspoon instead of a full). I'm not normally a tofu lover either, but this was great!

Not bad, but not amazing. I would possibly make this again. The coconut didn't really stick once they were taken out of the oven though, so kind of annoying. I would probably experiment with other causes for the dipping part too. Easy to make, so that's a plus if you're short on time....definitely edible!

I'm not sure what I did wrong but the coconut did not stick to the tofu so it was kind of messy.
