It is tasty. I've used it for yoga parties and family gatherings and even the veg heads will bend their rules since it isn't red meat and I can point out that it is loaded with veggies and gluten free. You could even skip the butter or ghee(sub more olive oil) and make it totally dairy free. It is specifically designed to be low allergy, it was concocted for an autistic boy who was celiac and egg allergic. Best of all even my Picky little sister loves it.
