      I added bean sprouts and left out the red pepper. We tried them steamed and baked and liked the baked best. Great recipe and great sauces too. Thanks S'kat!

      Loved these! They just scream summer to me. So fresh and so light. I used grated carrot added cucumber, and served with peanut dipping sauce. Thanks so much for posting.

      I use lettuce, cucumber wedges, cilantro, rice noodles and carrot strips in mine. I mix some melted crunchy peanut butter with Hoisin Sauce and use that for dipping. Easy and tasty.
