    belkathy's Note:

    Those monks know their stuff! The sherry makes this wonderful - don't leave it out! I like this best with Parmesan on top, but cheddar is awfully good too. Serve with crusty bread for a hearty, meatless meal.

      I LOVE this recipe! I have been making it for a year and am just now rating it. The sherry definitely is key and gives it a wonderful flavor. Also, the parmesan added when serving is perfect with the sherry. I tend to add a bit more carrot. Great recipe!

      This was very good even w/out the sherry (didn't have any). I blended 1/3 of it to smooth out the texture a bit and served it over rice.

      Awesome! I loved the flavor of the sherry! I also added a bit of garlic and a little cayenne pepper to spice it up. Thanks for sharing!
