    Yummy, I doubled the sauce ingredients except the broth. This does not mean that this would otherwise have been dry, but I often do that with recipes, we tend to like things saucy.

    Excellent! I really enjoyed this tonight. I had no snap peas so I added celery, onions and thinly sliced carrots. I highly recommend this recipe.

    This was very good. I served it with brown rice pad thai noodles. I did not have the sweet chili sauce so I added some red curry paste. Other than that I made as directed, adding more vegetables such as kohlrabi and broccoli. I also did not have the peanuts for garnish; we added some chopped cilantro instead which added an interesting flavor. I would definitely make this again.

    This was so tasty! I used brown rice, regular chili sauce, ground ginger, EVOO, and broccoli instead of peas. I steamed the broccoli for a couple minutes first. I also added some slices of onion. This was very filling and yummy. Definitely a keeper.
