“This is out of the Fall 2008 clean eating magazine...So I made this tonight...7/21/12...mine turned out very much like the photo in the was a pale yellow like chicken broth...not sure what happen with the 1st reviewer...I used steamed broccoli and threw in a touch of sliced chili pepper for additional color and heat...I do think that a splash of lime would really bring all the flavors together...hope you enjoy it!”
