      It needs more dressing and it needs way more rice. This doesn't have a lot of flavor.

      I usually have all of these ingredients in my refrigerator and pantry anyway. I have been trying to get flavor into my food with spices and seasonings, rather than fats and sugars. I don't care for brown rice, so I steamed some basmati rice, which I love! I did add on some crushed peanuts on top. I think what I like about this dish is the texture of the food, and ease of preparation, along with the flavors. Also, I added a few red pepper flakes to the dressing as I like a little bit of heat in my Asian food. This is a great recipe!
