"I quite liked this dish. I made it as-is per recipe. it had a pleasant peanutty flavor and a very nice consistency. I served it over white rice and thought it was delish. Hubby, on the other hand who is very traditional liking very average flavors was not a fan at all. I think he feels peanut buter belongs on the kids' plates at lunch...that's how he is. However if you like different flavors and like to try new things, this is the dish for you. Also, super easy to prepare."
