This recipe is very good. As a diabetic I have to follow a low carb, no sugar diet so I tried this recipe for lunch today. I found the flavors to be very bright and the overall dish quite satisfying. I did add a slurry of 2 tsp corn starch mixed with water at the very end just to tighten it up a little.
