I tried this recipe last night, exactly as is, and it was wonderful. The only question I had was the mention of Soya in the instructions, but no mention of soya in the ingredients list. I went with a guess and used 1 tbsp. It turned out fantastic. Even my kids loved it and they're a pretty fussy bunch. I would make this again in a heartbeat. Excellent!
