    Our entire family loves this recipe. I've made it multiple times. It's a hit with our picky 8 yr old and our 16yr old. It's her favorite recipe. On the menu this week. - 1/28/19

    super easy and super tasty! I subbed cornstarch (just used 1 T.) for the flour (gluten concerns); and I chopped up the peeled broccoli stalks and cooked them with the onions, so I had to add a little more water to cover the spuds. Also added 1/2 a fennel bulb that was lurking in the fridge. A+ :) - 2/12/11

    I'm so glad you liked it! That fennel sounds like an AWESOME addition. Definitely have to try it next time.

    I'm not exactly sure on the measurement. I'd say 1 cup is close, but I'll check next time I make it and update the recipe.
