"Delicious! I doubled the recipe. I saute'd two cloves of garlic with the pecans and tossed in 1 chopped bartlet pear at the end before adding to the carrot and celery. Then added mixture on top of 1 cup of cooked quinoa. What a treat!"

"Great taste!!! And quick. Will be making this often. Didn't have pecans on hand, but walnuts tasted great. Will be using pecans later, since I prefer them."
