These are so good- just something I came up with one day. They are quite spicy, so if you don't like a lot of heat, you might lower the spice the first time you try them. You can also adjust to chicken stock in order to have a thick sauce or a more soupy consistency. I like both. The red pepper is a type of spice, not a mashed up pepper as someone once asked me! I am a vegetarian now and this is still fabulous meat free.
