    "This is an excellent, healthy side dish! I ended up using too much ginger, which I will be sure to not do in the future. The Chinese students I host loved the strong ginger flavor, but it was overbearing for the rest of us. Stick to the recipe as is - it's a winner!"

    "Great flavor profile. I was confused over the directions, and I sauteed the Brussels Sprouts in the oil instead of in a dry pan. I will make these again, for sure."

    "We have always liked "brussies," but this adds a new dimension to this wonderful little cabbage-like veggie. Instead of the water, I added some white cooking wine, Excellent. As a volunteer field editor I am happy to give this recipe five stars."
