  1. I had this in a skillet waiting to serve with Christmas dinner. It never made it to the table. Everyone started picking out pieces from the skillet until there was not one piece left to serve. Quite a hit with family!

  2. Great side dish to go along with asian-inspired meat dishes.

  3. Can the broccoli be substituted with asparagus?

    Both I and another poster asked this question yesterday & they have vanished from the comments though they WERE both displayed.
