    Used this on Steamed sweet potato, carrot and pumpkin, and broccoli made eating vegetables enjoyable  -  22 Aug 2012


    Altered ingredient amounts. I used less soy and butter as the first time it was a little salty. The second time I made this, I replaced half of the butter with low sodium chicken stock and unsalted cashews.  -  18 Jul 2010
