    I am soooo excited to see this here!! This is one of my favorite dishes! The nutrition info is better than I expected. I agree with Toniablake, you have to add the spinners/wrigglers to make it complete :) - 4/1/11

    This is almost my own recipe. I am very happy to see it here. The recipe list does not include the spinners/dumplings though so I was wondering if all the ingredients were a part of the nutrition analysis. It looks much better than I dreaded. Thank goodness, since it's one of my favorite meals. - 9/15/09

    I would leave out the coconut milk.....and instead of canned kidney I would go from scratch..

    This one is definetly a time saver though and still is delicious
