This is a recipe I created after enjoying a similar dish at a Chinese restaurant. The fresh orange flavor is wonderful.It was published in a Sunset Magazine Kitchen Cabinet several years ago.

I cut the recipe in half - loved the flavor but felt it needed a bit more kick so added 3/4 tsp Chili Flakes (hey this is me and spicy not the recipe's fault). I am sorry I didn't have any sprouts but will next time I make this recipe. Thank-you for a super dinner Quail Trails
