Review Body: I just made. I added yams, mushrooms and carrots, and will serve it over quinoa. It's for my veggie lunch club. It came out great--but only needed 25 min., all together.

Review Body: I'm making this for our Christmas Eve dinner and assume that the full cooking time is 45 minutes, instead of letting it cool for 20 minutes until browned. I'll give that way a go, anyway. Thanks for the idea; cheers!
