I made this recipe with a few adjustments: I cut back on the oils, I used Bragg's Liquid Aminos instead of soysauce, I added chickpeas so I could make this a one-dish meal, and I left out the amaranth, replacing it with more millet. It smelled wonderful while cooking. It tasted fine, but somewhat bland and dry. Maybe this is partly my fault for reducing the flavourful oils. However, I would not hesitate to make it again. I would just use vegetable broth instead of water to give it more flavour, and I would increase the herbs. It would probably be better as a side dish. Must say, though, that the mushrooms were delicious -- maybe I will make just the mushrooms to eat on their own!
