Tasted good. Problems: 1. 20m end-to-end time listed, but 50m cooking in the instructions. 50m was fine, but too much in comparison with similar recipes. 30m also works, I suspect 10-20 would also be the same. 2. 6.5 cups of water, plus all the other moisture, produced too much liquid. Tasty meatless soup was nice, but I'd prefer more of a sauce than soup. - 27 Jul 2014
