I found this incredibly bland, and had to add jarred Thai chili sauce to make it taste like something. Was very disappointing after all the prep of making 5 servings worth.

It is very simple to make and healthy at the same time. My husband liked it and the children (5 and 8 yrs old) were very happy with the flavors, too. I loved the vegetables and the rice sticks texture. I think next time I am going to substitute the shrimps with chicken and I will probably cook the rice sticks in the chicken broth to get extra flavor. I sauteed the carrots, mushrooms and onions just for a couple of minutes because my family is not a fan of raw veggies but I am sure that the broth is hot enough to cook them.
