I love this--the "glaze" has great flavor. The only issue I had was that I wanted to make this into a vegetarian *meal*, so only having bok choy didn't seem like enough variety. So--as you can see in the picture I uploaded--I added red and orange bell peppers, 5 Thai chili peppers (whole), and 2 rainbow carrots. Because of all that I added, I changed the amount of ingredients to serve 5 instead of the 4 that the recipe is listed for.

I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
