    This is wonderful, i left out the broccoli and added 1/2 tsp red pepper, 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp cumin. I like the zing, but if you aren't a fan of spicy be careful with the red pepper.

    I didn't care for this. I keep trying recipes with rosemary and thyme but I haven't found one I like.
