  • Incredible!
    Made this last night and I loved it. I added a little lemon sea salt and black pepper and two cloves of garlic. I wasnt sure if the orange juice needed to be fresh or from concentrate so I used fresh and threw in the pulp too. - 4/1/10

    I thought it was really Good, but a little tangy for my husband. Next time I will try no lemon juice. - 1/4/10

    Very different taste! Once my taste buds adjusted, I loved it! I did not have squash so I used a red pepper instead! - 7/27/08
