  • Incredible!
    This is a family favorite. We add lots of sriracha and a bit of peanut butter when we don't have sesame oil. It's a dish that can take turmeric too if you are looking for ways to add that in. - 7/23/19

    I used grated ginger instead of ground ginger. I paired it with zoodles instead of rice. But it's very flavorful - 12/18/18
