from his website. He writes, "This one is sure to please even finicky eaters, especially when served with steamed rice. A real kid-pleaser, too. Serve this with steamed brown basmati rice and raw vegetables for a kid-pleasing meal. Leftovers are delicious cold!"

Top Review by Chef Tweaker

Wow... anything vegetarian that my husband will go back for seconds, deserves 5 stars! Hubby has been putting up with "diet" food for about a week now and this one he liked! At first glance I thought this would be a "sweet and sour" dish but it was more savory than I was wanting. I substituted out the water for more pineapple juice and then even added some vitamin C powder for more zing. I thought it was a little salty and considered reducing the soy sauce (didn't have tamari) next time but hubby thought it was OK as long as it was over rice. It was also a great use for my home canned mock pineapple which is made with zucchini!
