    Loved it. Grandma needs protein and veggies and this was a great way to get some in. - 7/28/19

  • Good low calorie vegetarian protein dish, simple to make. Had to use dried herbs since we had no fresh and omitted salt to make this even lower in sodium for us. Also had to use balsamic vinegar as we had no wine vinegar, but I don't think it made much difference. Will make this again. - 6/2/15
