  • This sounds so delicious!! Can I leave out the fish sauce or use something else in its place without sacrificing too much flavour? Tia.

  • Absolutely loved this dish! I did not feel like cooking dinner last night and this was perfect and so delicious! I used quinoa instead of rice and it was super yum! Thanks Leah

  • I am not a cook but this is foolproof. I made it too take to work for the week and it was so easy to cook and so delicious. I bought the 90 second sachets of rice to go with it which made it even easier :) Highly recommend!
