Yet another fantastic recipe from Serah! This had such amazing flavours and textures. This one will definately be a regular recipe around here! I used cilantro in place of the parsley, had homemade veggie stock to use up so used that in place of the apple juice and canned stock, and used a combination of mushrooms. So GOOD! Made for PAC Spring '09.
Really tasty! Have also subbed with brown rice and chicken stock and added some garlic and thyme - also very tasty - I think the apple juice adds a new level. Thanks for a keeper :)
