    I am thinking about making this but was thinking maybe adding a little bit of lemon juice.  Do you think that would help?

  • I think it needed something

    I think it needed something else. Found the flavour a bit bland...we added caramelised balsamic vinegar but it still needed something? Otherwise great recipe
