    Sounds lovely in theory, but... fish sauce?!? That's not very vegetarian, is it???  -  07 Apr 2017


    I didn't have all the veg the recipe listed so I just used up what I had and made the sauce. I spiced it up with dried chilli pepper flakes - not bad for a thursday night!  -  16 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't follow this recipe exactly, but it was useful as a basic guide. I didn't have fresh ginger so I used powdered. I used the fish sauce, but not the oyster sauce. I used up other veggies in the fridge including broccoli and green beans. I served it with Tempeh that I marinated in soy sauce and fried in olive oil. I love that this is filling and delicious without the serving rice or noodles.  -  27 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
