"Oh my goodness. This was sooo wonderful!! Cooked just as decribed over brown rice. WONDERFUL. We had enough for leftovers and they were even more wonderful. My husband and I eat lunch together...he came late and almost missed out... : )"

"Look for Lipton's Recipe Secrets Savory Herb and Garlic soup and dip mix.

My daughter made this dish for our supper tonight. It needs a bit more salt and just a bit more punch so I added a few shakes of Frank's Chile with Lime sauce. It gave it the proper balance of acid to really send the flavors to the limit."

"Excellent flavor. Have made this several times. Cannot find the savory garlic and herb soup mix. I used garlic chicken bouillon."
