Pretty good, but we found it to be a little on the bland side for our tastes. I ended up adding some brown rice vinegar and chili paste and then it was fantastic! Five stars with those small changes. I also added some tofu to make this a complete meal. Thanks for posting, I would make it again with the above changes. It's a good base recipe easily changed for one's own tastes. Made for the vegetarian/vegan swap.
