Very yummy and easy to make. I chose this because it seemed like a filling dish for not a lot of calories. I didn't have all the ingredients but I substituted and it came out great. I used juice from 1/2 lime and zest instead of the lemongrass. Also had 2 baby bok choy so I added some frozen whole leaf spinach. My son does not like cilantro (which I love) so I used parsley instead. Used olive oil instead of peanut oil. Only used 1/2 tsp red pepper and was spicy enough for me, my husband did not think it was spicy. Can add your own if wanted.
