This spicy dish will convince even the biggest skeptic that Heart Smart® eating does not mean sacrificing taste. I doubt the nutritional data shown here; info as per the cookbook, Heart Smart published by the Henry Ford Health System, the fat content = 11g/serving & calories at 450/serving, both of which sound truer to me. I also doubt the fiber - I tested this by editing to remove the bamboo shoots from the ingredients- the fiber grams DID NOT change at all. That said, the recipe tastes great but if exact nutritional facts are needed, don't count on these for your diet!
