Loved Loved Loved this! I used asparagus instead of squash but everything else to the T. The meal tasted like it was from a Chinese restaurant. I prepped the lemon, ginger, and veggies beforehand and it made cooking quick and easy. I highly suggest giving this a try! (It's a great way to make use of fresh ginger)
Loved this! I used snow peas in place of the squash and just used a whole lemon's worth of juice (about 1/4 cup). Delicious! Thank you!
