These were very good. I stirfried everything and served them hot. I also added 2 tbs of soy sauce. They were perfect! Made for ZWT4.

I thought this was pretty good, but DH didn't like the vinegar smell/taste. Served with ginger beef stir fry.

This was a great side dish - loved the taste of the sesame oil and sesame seeds with the broccoli! I steamed the broccoli in my microwave. Thanks Paula for a nice healthy side dish!
