  • have made it several times. prepared as posted - it was okay, not great. but since then i have taken out the meat substitute and added more veggies (peppers, zucchini, whatever is on hand). yum! plus there are tons of leftovers for lunches during the week. also, goes well with vegan cornbread. - 8/4/08
