  • The recipe was a little hard to read - I think there are some typos ('chopped' and 'sliced' for the onions); I followed directions I found at a blog when I ran into trouble reading the above.

    Still, it's really good. Great for an easy (though not quick) vegan meal. I suggest cooking in some stock
