SO HOW'D IT GO?

this turned out really good!! I used kidney beans instead of tofu, which was good, but I will probably use tofu next time for a more authentic taste.  i did the spices to taste, so i probably used less crushed pepper then mentioned ahead. next time i will probably cook the red pepper a little bit in the oil first on its own, because it didn't quite get tender enough.

Super spicy!  But very yummy... my omnivore boyfriend pretty much inhaled the whole thing.  I'm not crazy about bean sprouts and cabbage so I left those out and added zucchini instead.  Colorful and pretty!
