I was attracted to this dish because I had all the ingredients on hand and it sounded so colorful, which it is. Also a breeze to make. Of course, one has to adjust the microwave time according to one's own microwave. The only thing I wasn't wild about was the addition of sesame oil. To my tastebuds it wasn't complimentary. My preference would be olive oil in this case. Thanks for a quick, colorful, healthy veggie dish!
