Good recipe.Light but satisfying. My family will not eat nor even take a look at tofu but they ate it without knowing it :)I have some bean sprout at hand and added it right before I took the pan from the heat. I like my bean sprouts a bit crunchy. Thanks for posting.

I forgot to make the rice and still this was a good dinner. I tripled the garlic (at least), sauted it with half a alrge onion and added bean sprouts after I removed it from the heat as suggested in another review. Very quick cooking and clean up. Thanks!
