Incredibly easy with a taste to match. So quick to make too. I think it took me longer to prep this than to make it! I can see using this sauce for other things and changing the vegetables too. I used extra garlic because we like a lot of it. Thanks for a great recipe.

I used broccoli, zucchini and mushrooms for my veggies and it was so flavorful! Even my veggie-hating DH liked this recipe. The sauce was very easy to make and I agree with Ducky that it would be a great sauce to use on other recipes. Thanks for posting!

I doubled the sauce, added some broccoli and served over brown rice with grilled chicken. So simple and tasty!
