Great recipe.  I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used balsamic (only 1 TBSP) and a nice splash of red wine.  I also added a nice dose of garlic.  It was a little salty, but very delish!


I tried this recipe tonight and added a clove of garlic, a few onions and peanuts at the end as other reviewers suggest and I LOVED IT!!! It will definitely be part of my weekly menu and I imagine that I could use other vegetables in addition to broccoli.  THANK YOU for a GREAT recipe!!!


One should cook the noodles prior to the begining the rest of the meal since they can take a while. I didn't do this .... twice....


Qrmama, you are making regular review comments.  It's not your comments alone that are in a separate review box.  A while back the site got totally revamped, and all of the old comments before the change appear like the other comments so far here.  You should see that my comment looks just like your comment, as both of our comments are post web revamping.


oh, we added sunflower seeds as well.  This was a nice addition.


this recipe was ok.  a little too vinegary for my family.  with that being said, the vinegar did grow on me a bit and with the additions of garlic powder, tofu, brown rice, and brewers yeast it was a hearty summer meal.

PS-can anyone tell me why all of my posts are listed in a separate "review" box.  How do i make them just normal comments?
