Notes

I went vegetarian and simple for this meal. But, chicken (maybe pan seared kinda crispy, with some sesame seeds), beef, pork, or tofu would be a delicious addition. You can also use tons of other veggies: snap peas, green beans, celery, cauliflower, squash, garlic… use what’s in season, and what you have!

Sesame seeds would be a nice addition. I just forgot to add them. You could also top with chives, peanuts, almonds, or crunchy noodles.

I didn’t add any salt. I tasted it (it didn’t make it into the show) and for me, it didn’t need any.

Cook time doesn’t include sides. Serves 2 with leftovers.
