Well, lets just start with the fact that I made 2 serving and ended up eating it all for dinner last evening. It was that good! I did skip the sesame oil only because I just couldn't justify buying a bottle for 1/4 tsp of oil when it's something that I never use. I put it on brown rice with some string beans for a bit of veg. Excellent flavor and texture and made in a flash. I just have to join the other reviewers and say, BRAVO.
