This was soooo amazing no kidding...i literally couldn't believe how good this was, and was super easy to make! Not to mention, you don't have to spend an arm and a leg either at the grocery store or at a restaurant! This will be a new staple in my house!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2009

This is one of my very favorite recipes! I have made it many, many times and everyone I've served it to has loved it, too. I keep cans of bean sprouts on hand just for this recipe, in case I can't get to a store. I do add more broccoli (preferably from fresh) than the recipe calls for because I like broccoli, but the taste is great anyway. Joan is right: it is at Least as good as any restaurant variation ever. Thanks!
