From her notes: I left out the peanuts and used a little toasted sesame oil instead of peanut oil…………it was very good and could be used in phase II with some chicken, but I have to say that I really did enjoy it with the tofu The brown rice in this dish is nuttier-tasting and better for you than white. Long-grain brown rice tends to be a little milder than short-grain, but whichever you use, be sure to start this recipe using cold cooked rice.

This was amazing! Had some leftover brown rice and wasn't too inspired to do something with it. Then I stumbled upon this recipe and I'm so glad I did! I left out the snow peas as I'm on a bit of a budget and for some reason my local store didn't have cilantro, so I substituted with tatsoi. I also added some mushrooms. Thanks for this, I will DEFINITELY make it again!
