  • Reviews

  • “We LOVE this recipe. However, we are vegan so we made a modification, in that we use crumbled TVP (with a little “no-chicken” bouillon). And I agree… it could use just a tad more of the seasonings – but SO good!”

  • “This was pretty good although I think it could use a bit more curry powder.I used a fresh oatmeal bread, but it could have used the ‘heft’ of a denser/coarser wheat bread.”
