This recipe just caught my eye while I was reading Cooking Light, Sept/07, issue. Have taken the liberty of adding some toasted almonds and crushed red pepper flakes to an otherwise wonderful recipe. It was awesome! UPDATE: Made this again & had no almonds but did have cashews, so I used them and they were even better! 09/15/07

A really nice combination of flavors. I substituted red onion for the shallots. The broccoli florets were frozen. I did sprinkle lightly with sliced almonds.

Great flavours! I didn't quite have enough mushrooms so I added abit of chopped red bell peppers. And, instead of red pepper flakes I added essence spice. Not a fan of nuts in my meals so didn't add them. Sometimes I add chopped waterchestnuts in place of nuts for the crunch, I'll try that next time. Absolutely loved this dish, thanks for sharing.

Loved it! Nice to have a recipe that combines two of our favorite vegetables. Thanks for adding the red pepper flakes; I loved the zing this added. I left the almonds out, out of concerns for calories and fat ... and I ended up leaving out the chicken broth, because there was so much liquid left from the mushrooms and sherry that I felt I didn't need it. (I used cremini mushrooms.) Lovely -- thanks for posting this!
