    Neena A simple suggestion I would use sesame oil to give it a little more of an asian flavor.

    Sesame oil is a great idea, it makes it do-able for me to try as I'm allergic to peanut.

    Yum...try throwing in cashews at the last minute, and using Inoki and Shitaki mushrooms.......REALLY YUM! Red pepper flakes make a nice "kick", and cut-up broccoli will stretch this dish even further, if you have a family to feed.
