Excellent! I have two daughters home for the summer that follow the vegan way of eating. I found this recipe was a great way to make one meal for the entire family. The filling has an excellent flavour. It would be nice on its own.I did not have mushrooms so I substituted celery. I substituted parsley for corriander.
