It was good. Not exactly "great." I appreciated the previous comments about Miracle Rice. I had never heard of it before. I used it. I also did not use oil to cook my vegetables but just added a little water as needed to prevent sticking. Read More

Will do often was wonderful. Loved the combination of flavors in the sauce. That is a better sauce then most. Skipped the oil and saute in broth but otherwise followed recipe. Had peanut oil available to drizzle on if others wanted. I had as a main vegetarian meal so ate double portion. Used miracle rice no calories for mine so could eat more of this. An interesting seasoning to add is Eden Shake Sesame and Sea Vegetable seasoning. Only improvement would be recipes to use weights rather then "cups" or "one pepper" for more accuracy in amounts to use. Sizes of veggies vary so much. Read More

I combined all ingredients rather than adding ginger garlic and crushed red pepper later. Worked out very well. I also added cooked chopped chicken. So good!!! Read More

I made a big batch of black rice the day before. Did not have roasted sesame or peanut oil but used avocado oil and canola. Delish! Read More
