Haven't tried it.... YET! Definitely a must try! It's quick, easy, and needs very few ingredients... what a broke & busy college student needs!


I just had this for my dinner and it was great!  I had some spinach that needed using up & wanted dinner quickly.

Few changes (as there always is!!):

I used only sesame oil for frying & didn't add any more at the end.
I did add some red bell pepper, just coz it was there in my fridge.
I also added freshly ground pepper & soy sauce instead of salt

Fantastic!  It will definately be something I cook again.  Thanks.
