Made this last night for dinner with a few alterations. I didn't have sesame oil, so I used extra virgin olive oil and about a tablespoon of sesame seeds instead. I used 2 cups cold/precooked brown rice and about a cup of frozen peas because I didn't have the packaged peas and carrots the recipe called for. I  used 1 teaspoon parsley and 1 teaspoon basil instead of the 2 teaspoons of one or the other.  And I also used no margarine or salt and used braggs instead of tamari sauce. It turned out fantastic! I definitely will be using this recipe again and again! My 2 year old also liked this recipe. Thanks for posting! ;)b


The seasonings in this were really good. I added some cashews and left over tofu for protein and about 1/2 tsp. sugar. I will definitely make this again.


This was an excellent recipe. Even my 2.5 year old, who normally avoids food with chunks of onions and peppers in it just navigated around them and devoured a full plate. Had I known it would turn out so good, I would have doubled the recipe!
