I liked the ease of preparation and the fact that four of the five food groups were present. How great is that? I made it with the idea that my husband would like it since it didn't seem like it would be very strong. However, he didn't like it and it was too weak for me. So this is a great dish if you want to hold down your calories and sodium content, but not very robust for people who are used to Asian food.
