  • Trying to reduce sodium in my diet, so I made this with water and reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp. I added fresh ground black pepper and substituted 1 Tbsp canola oil for the butter. It makes a nice supper, not too strongly flavoured that even my picky husband enjoyed. Whole wheat bread goes well. - 8/17/11
