      We really, really liked this. The sesane seeds imparted an almost peanuty flavour that was unusual and delicious. Served with stuffed chicken breasts and potato puffs. Thanks for posting it.

      I'm pretty sure this was the worst thing I've ever put in my mouth. I thought with all the great reviews, I'd be along with the concensus, I have made several Asian vegetable dishes & reviewed most very highly. The ground up sesame seed consistency was unappealing both visually & taste. So, I won't be making this one again, but I can say I tried it. <br/>I was able to savage the dish by rinsing the beans off, placing them in the crock pot with some ham, beans, onions & potatoes. Fortunately, it wasn't a total loss. Thanks for sharing.

      This was great--light, easy, and delicious. I love that there's no oil in it. Thank you Terese.
