"Didn't think it would be as flavored as it was, DELICIOUS!!"

Reviewed Aug. 14, 2014

"Really good! I've made this many times. My husband requested I make this for guests coming tomorrow. I also have made substitutions; most any vegetable suitable for stir frying would taste good."

"This is really, really good! I think it lends itself well to substitutions--I nixed the cabbage since I didn't want to make a special trip to the store; it was still VERY tasty."

"Quick and so easy to make and it tastes good too! I subbed cauliflower for the cabbage. I made this as a side dish for a dinner. Everyone loved it. Next day for lunch tossed some of the leftover veggies with some diced chicken breast. Very good."
