This is one of those recipes that I am, honestly, not completely sure how to rate. It was very different. The combination of orange juice and the veggies was tasty, it was simply a different taste and texture then I'm used to. For the sugar I filled a 1/3 cup measure with what milled cane sugar I had left and then finished the cup measure with splenda. I then used 1/3 cup of regular white too (to make the full 2/3 cup called for). I baked and then let it sit as it supposed to be eaten cold. I had a disaster at dinner and couldn't cook the main course i had intended to, so I cooked some tilapia and served this as the side dish. My kids wouldn't eat it but my husband had 3 pieces. I'd like to try it warm, I think that might help the texture a tad. Very interesting concept and I love to try to eat vegetables in a different way. Thanks for posting!
