This was a bit odd. Not bad, but as written, the sauce was thinish, flavor-wise. Butter perked it right up, but I was a bit disappointed to have to use butter.

My family- including my three year old and my husband- enjoyed this recipe. I didn't use dried mushrooms, but used fresh and added broth istead of mushroom liquid. It was a thin broth, but perfect when served over brown rice.
