    This is a really good recipe. Tasty and I love all the protein I get without meat. Lots of fiber, too. Can you get any healthier? - 9/28/09

    I made this for lunch today. The flavour is amazing! I am individually freezing the remaining 7 servings, rice in separate containers, for future use. I will definitely make this health-conscious, tasty recipe again. Thank-you for sharing it! - 3/14/10
