When reheating leftovers, I always add some fresh bean sprouts on top after heating. This gives a nice crunch!

    My apologies daniellehcp, I forgot to put in the bean sprouts and the sesame oil. I typed this one up four times before getting it to save, and was seeing a very hazy screen due to tired eyes the last time I typed it! It shouldn't have effected the flavour, they are just a couple of finishing touches. I hope you enjoyed it, I'm having a bowl of leftovers now tmrc_emoticons.-)
