    I have made this for our evening meal tonight. It was amazing. I made it with griddled chicken breast for my meat eating husband. I did it exactly as the recipe. My question is, on the ingredients list it says 2 tbsp tamari and on the instructions it says 3 tbsp tamari. I always prep all my ingredients and read the recipe twice before I start cooking. We have enjoyed it so much it is now in my favourite recipe folder. (I also used a full small red onion as it seems a waste to only use half an onion). I have your book and am starting to work through it. :)
