My husband and I loved this recipe. I only use 1/5 of the red pepper, I may have picked a really hot pepper by accident, but we only used a little bit and it was perfect. I put mine over salad greens and it was great. We will be making this again.

Great flavor, very filling
delicious, filling, though not speedy

This stir fry is really delicious, it just takes a bit longer than the 30 min estimate (maybe more like 45).

I made some changes (like so many cooks do). I like less heat and more veggies, so I substituted bell pepper for the red in the recipe and added in broccoli, all the scallions (not just 3) and doubled the zucchini. I used maple syrup instead of molasses for the sauce, which came out fabulously. With more veggies, I should have doubled up the sauce, but the amount actually wasn't too bad. This dish definitely had that signature Thai aroma and flavor. And the cashews are an added touch of genius.

delicious, healthy
