    My boyfriend even liked this! I used creole seasoning, cheddar and gouda, and because I didn't have cream of anything soup, I added 1/2 cup vegetable stock, a splash of half and half, some sour cream, and a stalk of celery. Thanks. - 10/6/09

  • This was really fantastic! I used smoked Gouda instead of swiss, black-eyed peas instead of crumbles, and diced celery & organic half-n-half instead of the soup. It was amazing, even my 8-year-old daughter & her friend both loved it! - 1/13/12

  • OMG! This was delicious!! I didn't have a red pepper so I omitted this and seasoned the veggies and crumblers with onion powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper only. I also used smoked gouda (since it was all I could find smoked) and it came out delicious. I wish I could post the picture!! - 10/14/11

  • This was amazing! My 2 year old and 3 year old even liked it! I made a few modifications and changed the cheese to a smoky sharp cheddar instead of the swiss and it was soooo sooo good. I also used a Healy Request cream of celery. Thanks so much for sharing. This will be a staple in our house! - 3/8/11

  • This is a winner! I made some changes: I used french onion soup and some milk/flour (to make it creamy) instead of cream of celery soup, and I used TVP instead of the Morningstar Crumbles. I didn't use any Morton Seasoning. I just seasoned it with some salt and hot sauce. It turned out great! - 10/12/10

  • Made this for dinner last night and the Husband and I were both very pleased with this. I didn't have a can of cream of celery so I used cream of mushroom. Still it was hearty and yummy. Adding to our cookbook! - 8/20/10

  • I made this last night and it was fantastic! I had to leave out the onion because my husband is highly allergic. I couldn't find the smoked swiss so I used regular swiss mixed with some colby and it worked really well! I am definitely making this again! - 7/30/09

  • My first Spark recipe attempt - I was scared to death at how this would turn out but I was shocked at how wonderful it tasted. I did omit the cayenne pepper due to not wanting too much kick in the dish and just used cheese I had on hand. This is a keeper; can't wait for leftovers tomorrow! Thank you - 5/10/09

  • This is the first time I've EVER used veggie crumbles, but you can bet I'll be making this again. It is wonderful!! And, you can cook the brown rice and chop the veggies ahead of time. That's what I did, and it went together very easily after work. - 4/20/09

  • I made this for Easter and the dish came home clean--it was a huge hit. Since it was for company, I used chorizo (higher fat) instead of veggie crumbles... and I would have used 2% cheese but I had to search high and low to find smoked swiss! I will definitely make it again. - 4/15/09

  • Wonderful. I didn't have some of the exact ingredients, but it's easy to find substitutes. I had leftovers for lunch the next day, and that was almost better. Maybe the flavors had even more time to mix?
    Thanks for the recipe! - 4/2/09

  • I will certainly try this recipe. Our family is doing some cooking for a gentleman who had a stroke, is a vegetarian and cannot use one of his arms. This can be divided into equal portions and frozen then reheated. Great recipe for him and us, we wil also try it as it really looks GREAT! - 3/28/09

  • I omitted the veg crumbles and celery soup. I added soy milk and plain yogurt and this was a smashing success at my house. - 3/25/09

  • I will make this again! I used healthy request soup and 2% cheeses and less than the recipe called for. I left out the pepper because the kids don't like spicy. Next time will add more broccolli. Thank you for a good recipe that everyone enjoyed. This is one that will stay in my dinner rotation. - 3/25/09

    Thanks! I'm not sure if it was healthy request. I just try to find the ones that do not have chicken stock since I am a vegetarian. Sorry. I hope you like it. :o)
