"If this recipe had more flavor and did not turn out like rubber I might have tried it again. The only thing positive I can say about it was that it is a healty alternative if you don't care about taste. It is not the worst thing I have eaten but not worth making again."

"This was very colorful with the zucchini and corn. However, I would add more seasoning, and the cooking time should be increased by at least 15 minutes."
