I added the same amount of parsley as the rest of the ingredients (to make it officially simon and garfunkel style) and it was very good. I will make it again!!!


We liked this but next time I would cut way back on all the spices other then the onion (I used onion powder instead of onion salt as I didn't have any). I also would not add any water next time. I think I would go with the other reviewer that only used a teaspoon of each spice.

This was really yummy. I only put in a teaspoon of each spice though and I added pepper. Made French Load to go with it!
