spicy and delicious. this is what it is. i cant eat anything with gluten anymore (  :'( ) so am having it over buckwheat instead of farro, but grains is grains and they are all good.

I used a sweet potato and half an acorn squash for the potatoes and made my own veggie stock with nutritional yeast, celery seeds, allspice, paprika, salt, pepper and bay leaves. I love it so much. thank you!
