    I made this yesterday as a "cook-ahead" meal for the week. It is wonderful!! I did not use the sesame seeds because I did not want my mother who has diverticulosis to have sesame seeds. So, I added a tablespoon of Sesame Tahini to intensify flavor and 3 chopped scallions to intensify color. - 1/19/09

    This was excellent. I added about 1 Tblsp of honey at the end and it gave it a nice sweetness. Served over brown basmati rice - good flavors. Will try frying and tossing in the leftovers tomorrow. - 6/6/09

    I made this for dinner last night... it does not live up to the other member's ratings. Very bland. - 2/5/09
