this recipe did not skimp on the flavor at all! i followed the recipe almost perfectly, but used 5 cloves of garlic, and two teaspoons fresh grated ginger. the bananas were the best thing , so i made an extra two to top the dish off. also, i am a HUGE fan of peanuts, so i  chopped up way more than this recipe called for.

oh, and i used white grape peach juice for liquid. this was FANTASTIC and all of my meat eating friends loved it, too! thank you for this, i will be making it tons :)
