Oh man, I wanted to try this one, but everything is in ml!  I will have to check my measuring cup to see if it has ml on it.  I know, I know, the rest of the world works in metric, and the US just HAS to be different.  I wish we would go to metric too, but I know cups, that is how I was raised sorry.    :(


This was great - wanted thirds, but ran out! I worried about the amount of nutritional yeast, and actually cut it back by 1 tbsp., but it was fine. I added some dried bull kelp seaweed - yum, and about twice the amount of spinach. Next time I'll add even more, as it seemed to get lost.
