  • i made this last night, minus the almonds and cilantro because i didn't have either one on hand. i did add quite a bit of salt and pepper. i really enjoyed it. next time i might throw in some chopped dried apricot and some cut green beans. i think they'd both taste good in there. yay for vegan food! - 10/14/10
