The recipe instructions reference garlic, but there is none in the ingredient list. And there is no ingredient with salt - normally Thai food would have fish sauce or soy sauce. So we found this a bit bland. The small amount of hot pepper sauce was not enough to perk it up.

Served this as an accompaniment to Easy Plum Sauce #172468 with chicken. I used regular veggies so stir-fried them tender-crisp in little oil & followed the recipe from step 5 to the end. I had only dried basil so used it--I would not make that mistake again! The sauce was slightly sweet, tangy, and pretty spicy with the Tabasco-made the rice very good on its own & my version wasn't at all saucy. Family liked it; I would make this again (with fresh basil!).
