  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. I doubled the sauce, added some broccoli and served over brown rice with grilled chicken. So simple and tasty!


Hey there!~ My name is Crystal. I am 19,and living in Florida. I really love to cook,& bake all the time for my family.I just get so much enjoyment out of it! There is just something about the great aroma throughout the house when you bake something,creating special memories in the kitchen! A little more about me: I am a strict vegetarian,(almost vegan!,heh)but of course my whole family is not,so I cook just about anything! Other than cooking-I like to read,surf the net and create art. My favorite websites are: www.ebay.com & www.witchvox.com (I'm wiccan) Of course,the Zaar has become my favorite website! I love how friendly the people are and how interactive this place is!
