This was very good! I made my own hoisin sauce, and also dipped the finished product in the hoisin as well. If you don't plan on dipping in something, then you should really triple the sauce ingredients so it's not so dry. Oh didn't have the carrots and served with some julienned radishes on top for some crunch. Yummy!!
Hubby and I loved these...I found some cute baby romaine lettuce...went on a hunt for a nice recipe to use them in...this was the winning recipe...I'm so glad I found it...with those little leaves...there was no mess...the flavors mixed well together...in fact...and this isn't said often...hubby said can you make these again...so that's makes this a keeper in my book...thanks for posting this delicious recipe...btw...I couldn't find fresh bean sprouts...due to health reason...so I used canned...with that said we missed the added crunch that they would have brought to the dish...but still the flavor wasn't impacted...this recipe is going into my best of cookbook...:)
