Asian dinners are quite popular, and I enjoy them myself. They are easy to make. The benefit for me is that I can easily stay away from dairy which is one of my intolerances. I made this recipe with lots of leftovers and fresh ingredients. It took about 15 minutes to put together and is for a serving of one. Feel free to double or quadruple this recipe for the number of people in your family. This recipe is vegetarian.
