I’m so excited about this recipe.

    Saw this featured as a step-by-step on Tasty Kitchen and instantly thought, “Hmmm….that looks like something Laurie would make!’ I was right! Sounds like a great recreation of an already-yummy dish! You always take such beautiful photos with such vibrant color!

    This is gorgeous! I just make an Asian-inspired dish on Monday night with quinoa instead of rice and it was amazing. Now I need to try this one!

    This was excellent – and my children loved it too! I used rice wine vinegar instead of red wine vinegar. For the adult portions, I add a little Sriracha. It is awesome!

      Ooooh I love Sriracha! Good call… I bet it was super yummy too!
