We decided to give this recipe a try not because it sounded very good, but because it sounded quick and included lots of veggies. I expected something ok that would give us some nutrition without much time. And that's about what you get if you make it as is. However, I'd still recommend this because I think it gives you a good starting point. Use the recipe to help you get the technique right and even to get an idea of how many veggies to use. Like others have said, this recipe can take just about any veggie you can shred. Make sure there is something crispy in it though (cabbage, brocolli slaw, etc) as it adds to the overall texture. We found the sauce a tad boring, so I added fish sauce and Sriracha. I even had some leftover Pad Thai sauce that I added to it for a little extra complexity. After adjusting the sauce to our tastes, this has become one of our favorite recipes. It's a great way to get tons of veggies in.
