    I adjusted the amounts to serve 2 people, used a Kallo vegetable stock cube and threw in a handful of Quorn chicken-style pieces... it was the best home made Chinese-anything I've ever eaten!! A must-try - 2 thumbs up!!!  -  26 Sep 2011


    Easy to make and very tasty. Had it for lunch today today and will definitely make again soon.  -  30 Jan 2017


    I strongly recommend to rinse quinoa thoroughly before toasting it a little to remove its natural defense of bitterness & proceed w/the recipe.  -  31 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
