This is a recipe I found in Vegetarian Times Magazine. It was my turn to pick the recipe this week and this looked great in the book. Right before I went to make it, I went online to see if I could find the recipe to print out so I didn't have to type it all out and on the web site, I noticed there were some comments about this meal. Every single person that left a comment didn't like it and said it was bland and no flavor, all sorts of horrible comments about it. So I tried to get a hold of Lou in a frantic worried I had picked a horrible dish to make and tell her abt the negative comments! We decided to go ahead and make it anyway.
Well Lou had a great experience. She loved hers and so did her husband Todd. She said it was flavorful and everything about it turned out perfect. You can go to see Lou's review of the meal here. Lou Girl Plus Tea
I didn't have as much luck as Lou. When I first started making mine, they were falling all apart and it was frustrating me. So I added some more flour and egg. Then the egg helped it stay together a little better, but they still weren't very sturdy. I took a bite of it and didn't like it. The potatoes were still crunchy even after cooking it the amount of time it said. I hate potatoes that are still crunchy and not completely done.
Then for the relish. I made that and didn't like it either. I used the basil and so I picked all the basil out thinking that was why I didn't like it and I added cilantro instead, it was still blah. So I added some lime juice and more salt. It was okay but nothing great. So there I sat eating my crunchy falling apart meal with relish that I could live without. Sorry, but I just didn't like this meal either. :(
Well, if I have wet your appetite to want to try this amazing meal, you can go get the recipe here at the Vegetarian Times website. haha
I really wanted to like this meal, I tried the best I could, but it just didn't work out. I even tried a few of the tricks the commenters suggested on that page, but still, no.
The picture looks real pretty though, doesn't it?
