    Manda's Note:

    This is a fantastic stir-fry dish with lots of wonderful garlic flavor! You can play around with the veggie part...I've added broccoli instead of the zucchini, sometimes throw in some bamboo chutes, baby corn...just go with whatever catches your eye (and your tastebuds!). No matter which way you do it, this is a fantastic restaurant-quality dish that you will want to make again and again!!

      Belated ranking from Sept/02 - must have been great - has lotsa stars! Means it might get tried again not an easy task in our household just because I move onto other great recipes to try.

      Suggestion: use minced fresh ginger root instead of the ground ginger! It makes a world of difference. Ginger keeps for a long time if you follow these very simple instructions: peel it; cut it into slices; put it in a plastic container with a tight lid cover with dry sherry. Do this and you'll always have it on hand. Powdered ginger is not a substitute for the fresh stuff.

      What great garlic flavor. Smells good while being cooked, and tastes so good. Although the recipe shows a lot of fat, it is actually very low. Going to send a note to the zaar elves to fix this.
