"Definitely easy to prepare! Added about 2 Tbsp of brown sugar and some salt. Since I didn't have broccoli or red peppers, I doubled up on the frozen stir-fry veggies. My teenage son actually ate it! Served over brown rice. Very tasty!"

"Not much flavor. Needs more of something ... Maybe red pepper flakes, more salt, soy sauce. Thought it was pretty bland."
