I LOVED this; I'm so glad I made the whole recipe. Savory, yet slightly sweet, and no salt needed! I didn't have ground cloves, so I subbed a dash of Allspice. Garnished with browned butter croutons made from KateL's Whole Wheat Bread With Ginger & Cashews for ABM, and also minced mini red peppers. Tagged for Rookie Recipes, due 01/24/14.
