MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2010

"I was pleased to have a very low-sodium meal. However, all the veggies being simmered in liquid so long is not a stir-fry and they were all soggy and limp. Next time I will try stir frying them without the liquid, then remove them from the pan while the sauce simmers. Or something like that."
