This is delicious! If you're short on time, use a packaged frozen vegetable medley for some of the fresh veggies. Use vegs. of your choice.

Loved the assortment of fresh vegetables. I added some tofu for protein. However, I agree with other reviewers that the sauce could use a bit more flavour. Will definitely make again, but perhaps only 1/2 cup of water and 3 tablespoons of soya sauce next time.
Loved all the veggies, but could have used a bit more seasoning for my family's liking. I will definitely make it again and tweak the seasoning a bit. Thanks for a yummy and healthy recipe.
This was wonderful! I made this for dinner tonight and my parents enjoyed it with some tomato ketchup on the side. I used 4 onions(3 medium and 1 small), Sunflower cooking oil as a substitute for the toasted sesame oil, 3 cups of celery, 1 cup of mushrooms(tinned), and I did omit the zucchini, bamboo shoots and sliced water chestnuts(since we don't like any of these). For the red cabbage, I substituted it with white cabbage and the snowpeas with greenpeas. I used 1 1/2 cups of greenpeas. I did cut down on the quantity of soy sauce to just 1 tbsp. The only thing that mom and dad noticed was missing was "salt" in this. The absence of salt could clearly be made out in the taste, so, I will for sure add salt next time. Overall, this had a real good presentation once it was ready and taste-wise, it's good. Thanks for sharing!
