MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2014

My husband and I agreed that this was tasty, but we both thought it was missing something...meat! I think this would be a great alternative for vegans.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

This was a very good hearty meat alternative meal, the flavors blended well together. This is a keeper.
