Wow this was really good0 Helpful
followed recipe as is except used greek yogurt instead of mayo (which worked well). overall thought the dish was ok. wouldn't necessarily make it again.0 Helpful
Yummy but I only used half of the sriacha. Also I recommend cutting the broccoli up fairly small.0 Helpful
We've eaten the earlier version of this dish. This was again delicious but even with cutting the amount of sriracha in half it was hot. Maybe the new bottle of sriracha? I see there's a label that says shake well...0 Helpful
It was a great easy meal, but even half the amount of sriracha was a little too spicy for us. I’d use even less next time.0 Helpful
Loved this so much. Subbed bulghur for quinoa. Looking forward to the next time I make it!0 Helpful
