The flavor of this is absolutely outstanding. It's lighter and healthier, but you won't feel like you're eating diet food. I did have some trouble with the dumplings. I followed the directions exactly, but it was almost as if they wouldn't fully cook, although I let them boil away for over 20 minutes....very mushy. That probably has a lot more to do with my dumpling expertise than the recipe. I'm going to try it again, and if I can get the dumplings right, this will be a five-star for us. Thanks so much for posting!
