    I thought this was ok but not great. If I were to make it again I would use fresh veggies as the frozen ones got too mushy.

    This is definitely a make again meal. I was concerned it would be too bland or too sweet, but it was perfect. I didn't change anything about the recipe other than using low sodium soy sauce.

    Really Simple and tastes delicious. It is even good as a leftover and reheats well.
