I made this with purple kale and tofu! Added a little salt on the kale, and browned the tofu in olive oil and fish sauce before putting it in. Soy sauce was a nice touch. Thanks for the recipe!

I was quickly trying to put together some spice for our couscous and found this recipe on line. It's every bit as good as it sounds! I added a few red pepper flakes and some Himalayan pink sea salt. Absolutely great, thank you!
