I serve the stir-fry over the rice for a tasty no-fuss meal. For maximum flavor, use your fingertips to crumble the dried basil directly into the cooked rice.—Betsy Larimer, Somerset, Pennsylvania

"Will definitely cook again! It was flavorful and not too spicy for someone who likes pepper. Was a good accompaniment for the Asian Salmon recipe in Light & tasty..."

"This recipe was too spicy hot for us. I should have skipped the cayenne pepper and the ginger was overpowering though I used the lesser amount. I afraid this one won't be a repeat."
