Roselin, when I saw your post I almost didn't read it because it sounded weird. I'm glad I did read it because I just made some and it's really, really good. Thanks for the recipe.

I think this sounds delicious, and it is a welcome change from the heavy recipes loaded with calories, and lacking fiber usually seen on this forum. I will definitely try it (though will cut back on the oil!)
