    Mirj's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe from our local paper. Don't let all the different ingredients scare you off, it's yummy! The dried cranberries make it really interesting, and you can substitute butter and dairy yogurt for the marg and soy stuff if that's what you prefer.

      Excellent! I used only a 1/2 tsp of salt and about half the oil because we make our yogurt and it's a bit runnier than the commercial stuff. The dish was wonderful and my kids LOVED it. Don't leave out the cranberries, they really "make" the dish.
