Most excellent dish! For those complaining about the dish being bland, I used 1-1/3 pound of ground turkey, which has very little flavor, and added almost another half the amount of volume to the dish, thus less taste overall. Solution? Add more spices. More sesame oil, low-sodium soy & ginger paste. BTW, ginger paste (sold as 'Squeeze Ginger's) is light years ahead of ground, dry ginger. This is an epic recipe for our house.
Tweaks: Sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. Add chopped celery. When my carb count allows or I plan for it, a handful or two of sugar snap peas or snow peas. Wal-Mart has a bagged organic mix "Super Blend" of broccoli, cabbage, carrot & kale.10 oz bag 3.5 servings 6 carbs per 2 fiber so 4 net carbs. 2 g protein per serving.

I grew up in Tucson but moved to Colorado in 1989 and live in a household with my husband, Dad, daughter and 3-year old twin granddaughters. Our 8-year old grandson spends 2 nights a week with us. All of that adds up to often difficult menu ideas to met everyone's tastes. Zaar is very addicting and I love trying the recipes I find here. I like to find recipes of people that I see are still active on Zaar and love it when I hear back from the Chef after I review the recipe. Everytime someone reviews one of my recipes, I like to find one of theirs to make and review as quickly as possible. It's a way for me to find great chefs I don't know yet too! My husband has high blood sugar so we try to watch our carbs, but it is not easy because we love them so much! I was diagnosed with brain tumors in 2005 and so far have had 5 surgeries that have left my eyelid droopy. I hope to have a surgery that will correct that soon!! There is still one tumor they have not removed but my wonderful doctor James Garrity at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN says they will leave it alone until or if it ever causes problems!
