      This was quite good. I would honestly give this more than 5 stars if I could. I made as directed, except I also added some minced garlic when I sauted the green onion. And I garnished with chopped cilantro as well. Very easy to put together recipe. This is so filing it would be great as a main dish as well as an appy.
