“Here’s a main dish that’s a refreshing change of pace for dinner,” writes Linda LaPresle from Glendora, California. “Chock-full of veggies, it’s a treat for the two of us,” she says, “and so easy to multiply for drop-in guests.” TIP: Use any remaining water chestnuts or bean sprouts in a stir-fry, salad or Asian-flavored wrap sandwich later.
