Sorry but I didn't care much for this one. I think too much sesame flavor. I did like the mint though. Read More

This was very simple and actually pretty elegant for something you can whip up in less than 20 min. I omitted the mint because it just didn't suit my taste buds tonight and I added almonds and oregano for a little something extra. Read More

This is a easy tasty way to prepare snow peas! I didn't have any sesame seeds so I used sesame oil instead of olive oil. This boosted the sesame flavor. The mint seemed a little strange to me but it really didn't taste that bad in the end! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

We couldn't really taste the mint. Prehaps fresh mint rather than dried would have made a difference. Read More

My husband loved this and I ended up liking it but it had to grow on me. It was fast and easy to make a big plus. I used half olive and half sesame oil. I think my water chestnuts weren t the best quality a little soft. Next time I'll also try toasting the sesame seeds. The mint added a great flavor. All in all a very good recipe. Will definitely be making again. Read More

Used toasted sesame seeds and because I don't care for mint substituted with fresh cilantro instead. Light and refreshing recipe thanks!! Note: If you sub with cilantro add it at the end when/if you season with salt and pepper because cilantro doesn't stand up to cooking! Read More
