Quick, easy and fuss-free. Made this dish for Sean's lunch yesterday, and he absolutely enjoyed it.

Followed the recipe, and used some mixed frozen stir-fry veggies we bought from Costco, it was a wonderful combination. Oh, I added a little bit sugar to give a bit sweetness that worked very well in this dish.

Didn't have peanuts, so toasted some walnuts instead, very yummy! Served the dish over a bed of cooked brown rice, a well balanced meal!
